Changes Bought By IRCC in Proof of Funds
Express Entry candidates must have access to a certain amount of money so that they can sustain themselves during their stay in Canada. The proof to demonstrate this type of money is known as proof of funds. IRCC has made some changes in the amount of money that is needed to be demonstrated by the newcomers to settle in Canada.
Proof of funds is not required for:
- Express Entry candidates who are holding a valid job offer to work in Canada.
- Candidates in Canadian Experience Class
- Candidates in Federal Skilled Worker Program
- Candidates in Federal Skilled Trades Program
Candidates must update their profiles to reflect that they still have the required amount for settlement funds so that they can stay eligible for Express Entry. The proof of funds has always been updated by IRCC on a yearly basis.
