Breakdown of proof of funds requirements based on family size

The amount of money that each individual applicant will need to prove they possess varies in accordance with the number of family members they have. Again, the size of one’s family for the purposes of a “proof of funds” must include the spouses and common-law partners (as well as their dependent children) of the principal applicant even if they are already Canadian citizens/PRs or they are not coming to Canada alongside the applicant.

The table below outlines the funds required (in CAD) by number of family members according to IRCC, as of June 9, 2022.

Proof and Funds

Note: Although small, proof of funds requirements are altered every year based on 50% of the low-income cut-off totals. Be sure to check the new numbers once they’re posted.
