How Much Money do You Need to Immigrate to Canada?
The necessary amount of funds you need to immigrate to Canada varies greatly. Some immigration programs do not require anything more than the processing fees for your application. Others require a substantial investment in Canada. We will break it down by category below.
Economic immigration: Most economic categories of immigration require proof that you are able to financially support yourself during your resettlement in Canada. Some however do not. The categories of economic immigration that do not request proof of settlement funds usually require the applicant to have Canadian work experience or a Canadian job offer. The rationale being that these candidates do not require funds for resettlement in Canada given the fact that they have already integrated into the Canadian workforce.
Business immigration: All forms of business immigration require significant investment in Canada. It might require the applicant to have invested in a Canadian company or require an applicant to make an interest free loan to the federal or provincial government.
Family sponsorship: In most cases, you do not provide financial information to sponsor a spouse or dependent child. If you are sponsoring other family members like a parent or grandparent, there is a financial requirement that will need to be met in order to be eligible to apply.
Humanitarian and refugee sponsorship: If you are applying under humanitarian and compassionate grounds applications, no financial requirements exist. The only time financial information is required under this category of immigration is if the refugee is a privately sponsored applicant. In that case, the Canadian group sponsoring the refugee must demonstrate that they have raised sufficient funds to sponsor the resettlement of the refugee candidate
