Proof of Funds: Raiffeisen Bank Statement

После отправки Proof of Funds меня терзали смутные сомненья по поводу вот чего. Дело в том, что и у меня и у моего супруга на счетах в Райффайзен банке лежат по некоторой сумме в USD, каждая из которых сама по себе меньше той, которую надо было показать на двоих для Канадского посольства ($13,198). А в табличке PROOF OF SETTLEMENT FUNDS было написано черным по белому:

Supporting documents are:
— Bank account(s): a proof from a bank or a financial institution confirming that you have on deposit in your name the above-mentioned amount in Canadian funds or equivalent (we only accept bank statements confirming accounts held in Canada, in any other Western country or in a local bank headquartered in a Western country (Citibank, Raiffeisen Bank, etc.). You must submit an original bank statement (not a photocopy) or a fax sent to you directly from the bank. The bank statement must be in English or French, on a bank letterhead and signed. It should contain the following information: account number, account holder’s name, amount and currency. Please be advised that we cannot accept a bank statement issued more than 30 days before the submission of your current proof of funds.

Казалось бы, какая ерунда, приходит муж в банк, делает перевод на счёт супруги и всё зашибись. Ага! Щас! Валютные переводы у нас на родине запрещены и ниипет.

Ну и вот, пришли мы оба в один день и взяли по такому вот письму:

Никакого противоречия здравому смыслу в отправке 2-х писем от двух членов семьи я не углядела. И не зря. Самое главное в этом деле, как мне кажется, сделать их одной датой .

А, ну еще и скандал тут был, как же без местечкового колорита? Девочка-операционистка отказалась наотрез делать выписку на английском. Мол, «прога у нас на русском и вообще. » Я пришла домой, позвонила в Москву, в головной офис и там мне сказали, что данный сотрудник банка неправа и всё они дают, если надо. Потом я через форму на их сайте написала жалобу с указанием всех фамилий. Мне после этого аж звонили: «Приходите, мы вам всё дадим!». После вручения нам справок девочка-операционистка извинилась и тихонько добавила: «Вот если бы вы сразу сказали, что вам нужна «справка о состоянии счета на английском» а не «выписка», вам всё бы сразу дали». Ага-ага!

Proof of settlement funds requirement increases for Express Entry candidates IRCC advises Express Entry candidates to ensure their profiles reflect annual adjustments

January 17, 2020 by CIC News

The Government of Canada has introduced a slight increase to its settlement funds requirement and is urging Express Entry cand > The increase raises the required minimum settlement funds by just over 1.5 per cent for each family level.

For a single person arriving unaccompanied in Canada, this translates to an increase from $12,474 to $12,669.

All Federal Skilled Worker Class and the Federal Skilled Trades Class candidates must show proof of funds, which are required to ensure the principal applicant and her/his accompanying family members have the means to support themselves financially upon landing in Canada as permanent residents.

Canadian Experience Class candidates who are working in Canada on an eligible work permit are exempt from having to prove they have the minimum settlement funds.

However, Canadian Experience Class candidates invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through the Federal Skilled Worker Class will have to show proof of funds.

The increases for 2020 are as follows:

Number of family members 2020 amount
(in Canadian dollars)
2020 amount Increase
1 $12,474 $12,669 $195
2 $15,530 $15,772 $242
3 $19,092 $19,390 $298
4 $23,181 $23,542 $361
5 $26,291 $26,701 $410
6 $29,652 $30,114 $462
7 $33,013 $33,528 $515
Each additional family member $3,361 $3,414 $53

Family members include a spouse or partner, dependent children and the dependent children of a spouse or partner. IRCC considers a dependent child to be any family member under the age of 22.

Family members who are not accompanying the principal applicant to Canada must also be included.

Update your Express Entry profile

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) notes that, while small, the changes can affect a candidate’s eligibility if their available settlement funds now fall below the adjusted threshold.

For this reason, Express Entry candidates who are required to show proof of funds should ensure their Express Entry profile is updated to show they possess the adjusted proof of funds they require.

IRCC also encouraged exempt candidates to update their proof of funds, noting that, by doing so, the Express Entry system may find that they are eligible for more than one program.

“You don’t always know ahead of time which program you will be invited under,” IRCC says.

Acceptable funds

The funds must be readily available when a candidate applies for permanent residence and when a permanent resident visa is issued. The principal applicant will also have to prove to an immigration officer that they have the required amount and access to it upon landing in Canada.

The funds cannot be borrowed and equity on real estate cannot be counted as proof.

If accompanied by a spouse or partner, money held in a joint account can be counted towards the settlement funds requirement. Money held in an account under a spouse’s name can also be counted if the applicant can prove they have access to those funds.

Official letters must be obtained from the banks or financial institutions where the money is kept.

Proof of Funds requirement for Express Entry

All applicants, unless exempt, must show that they have enough money to support themselves and their family in Canada upon immigration. Proof of Funds (PoF) is one of the minimum eligibility requirements for:

  • the Federal Skilled Worker Program or
  • the Federal Skilled Trades Program

The funds must be available with the applicant, both, when the application for permanent residency is filed and when a permanent resident visa is issued.

If an applicant meets the the program requirements of the Canadian Experience Class (this includes provincial nominees who are part of the CEC stream), they are exempt from the PoF requirement. Also applicants who are authorized to work in Canada and have a valid job offer.

The Legal Genesis –

The PoF requirement is not present in the Immigration & Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). However, the IRPA regulations stipulate the PoF requirements along with the eligibility requirements. The selection criteria as set forth in subsection R76(1), also mandates that the applicant have sufficient funds available to support their settlement in Canada, pursuant to subparagraph R76(1)(b)(i). The relevant paragraph states as follows

(i) have in the form of transferable and available funds, unencumbered by debts or other obligations, an amount equal to one half of the minimum necessary income applicable in respect of the group of persons consisting of the skilled worker and their family members, or

(ii) be awarded points under paragraph 82(2)(a), (b) or (d) for arranged employment, as defined in subsection 82(1), in Canada.

To meet the requirements of the above paragraph, the funds available with the applicant must be

  • available and transferable;
  • not borrowed;
  • unencumbered by debts or other obligations; and
  • sufficient to support initial establishment in Canada.

Pursuant to section R77, the requirement and criteria for settlement funds must be met at the time the application is made as well as when the permanent resident visa is issued.

How much money is required to meet the PoF requirement?

The amount of money an applicant needs to support his family is set by the size of an applicant’s family. To calculate the size of a family the following must be included:

  • yourself
  • your spouse or partner
  • your dependent children and
  • your spouse’s dependent children

When calculating the applicant’s family size, applicant’s spouse or dependent children who are permanent residents or Canadian citizens also have to be included, even when they are not named in the application.

The applicants will need to show proof that they have enough money when they apply to immigrate, and again when the application is approved.

If the applicant is unable to demonstrate that they have sufficient funds to meet the requirements, the application is refused.


The current sufficient funds requirements as established by IRCC is:

Number of
Family Members
Funds Required
(in Canadian dollars)
1 $12,669
2 $15,772
3 $19,390
4 $23,542
5 $26,701
6 $30,114
7 $33,528
For each additional family member $3,414

How to meet the PoF requirement?

When an applicant is invited to apply for permanent resident, they must give written proof that they have this money and demonstrate that they meet the PoF. All applicants should provide an official letter(s) from one or more financial institutions that lists all current bank and investment accounts as well as outstanding debts, such as credit card debts and loans.

  • The letter(s) must be printed on the letterhead of the financial institution and must include the applicant’s name , the contact information of the financial institution (address, telephone number and email address), t he account numbers , the date each account was opened and the current balance of each account as well as the average balance for the past six months .
  • Other documents may also be requested, as necessary.

When showing the funds, these cannot be borrowed from another person. This is the intention of IRCC to ask for 6 months average balance. Also, an applicant must be able to use this money to pay the costs of living for his family, even when they non-accompanying.

Showing funds held in joint accounts and spouse’s accounts

If an applicant’s spouse is accompanying, the applicant can show the funds held together in a joint account to meet the PoF requirement. However, to be able to show the funds for meeting the PoF requirement, held in an account under the spouse’s name only, the applicant must prove that they have access to the funds. This can me done by the spouse executing an affidavit affirming that the funds held in the spouse’s account can be used by the applicant for the purpose of meeting the PoF requirements.

Similarly, if an applicant has a joint account with their parent, then the parent will have to execute an affidavit affirming that the funds held in the joint account can be used by the applicant for the purpose of meeting the PoF requirements.

Using gift deed to meet PoF requirement

If you are invited to apply, and you cannot meet the PoF requirements, you can consider meeting this by getting the funds in form of a gift. Gift, as defined under law is the “voluntary transfer of property (movable or immovable) from one person (the donor or grantor) to another (the donee or grantee) without full valuable consideration (exchange of money or property), or an expectation of return. When executing the gift deed, it should meet the formalities of the country in which the gift deed is being executed. The gift deed will also overcome the 6 months average balance requirement as the funds will be with the applicant shown as a gift.

Gift deed in India

In India, gifts are governed by the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 (the law which governs transfer of movable and immovable property) in Chapter VII (which deals with Gifts), specifically Section 123 clearly states:

22. “Gift” defined
“Gift” is the transfer of certain existing movable or immovable property made voluntarily and without consideration, by one person, called the donor, to another, called the donee, and accepted by or on behalf of the donee.
Acceptance when to be made-Such acceptance must be made during the lifetime of the donor and while he is still capable of giving.
If the donee dies before acceptance, the gift is void.

123. Transfer how effected
For the purpose of making a gift of immovable property, the transfer must be effected by a registered instrument signed by or on behalf of the donor, and attested by at least two witnesses.
For the purpose of making a gift of movable property, the transfer may be effected either by a registered instrument signed as aforesaid or by delivery.
Such delivery may be made in the same way as goods sold may be delivered.

So in effect, there is no requirement for a written instrument. However, to show evidence of the gift to IRCC, a written instrument is mandatory.

A gift deed or an affidavit is sufficient, as both, the stamp paper and the gift deed are executed on a Rs. 100 stamp paper, and the stamp paper is registered in the name of the person who is executing the document, i.e. the donor.

Further, section 122 lays down the requirement for how the gift is made. The basic requirements that should be met in a gift deed are:

a. The transfer should be made voluntarily;
b. without consideration (no expectation of money, return, or other favours); and
c . an acceptance by the donee (acceptance can be by acknowledging in writing that the gift has been received or by the act of receiving it).

What cannot be used as PoF?

Any asset which cannot be readily liquidated, and the price of which cannot be ascertained immediately, cannot be used to meet the PoF requirements. Therefore, real estate assets, stocks etc. cannot be used. However, bank deposits, mutual funds, treasury bills, bonds, provident fund (India), Life Insurance Policy (whole life insurance, term life cannot be used) and similar monetary investments that can be readily liquidated, can be used for PoF, without liquidating them.

A POF is typically issued by a commercial bank Commercial Bank A commercial bank is a financial institution that grants loans, accepts deposits, and offers basic financial products like savings accounts and certificates of deposit to individuals and businesses. It makes money primarily by providing different types of loans to customers and earning a spread between what it lends or custody agent to provide confidence or assurance to another party that the individual or entity in question has sufficient funds to complete an agreed upon purchase.

Proof of Funds (POF) for a Home Buyer


The seller of a home or piece of real estate will often request a Proof of Funds from the buyer in order to hold it for them while they wait for the transaction to close. The POF is required because without it there is no certainty that the buyer will be able to complete the transaction.

As part of the Canada express entry application process you will need to prove to the Canadian government that you have enough funds to support yourself and any accompanying family members when you get to Canada. This is because the government is not going to provide any financial support for new immigrants and therefore they need to make certain that you land with enough money to support yourself in Canada.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) sets the guidelines as to the required sources, types and amounts they consider you will need as a minimum in order to settle in Canada. Detail requirements can be found at https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/documents/proof-funds.html.

Canada makes small increase to required funds for Express Entry applicants

One of the requirements for Canada’s Express Entry programs is that applicants show they have sufficient funds to support themselves and their family members when they arrive in Canada.

How much did the amount increase?

The amount of money required for proof of funds is increased every year to account for inflation in Canada. The increase is generally quite small, this year the increase being less than $200 CAD for a single applicant.
