How much money do I have to bring for 3 person family (me, my wife & my 1 year old son)?

Is it $17,000 cad or the same $10,000 cad?

Regards

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some definitive information on the CIC Website in the Proof of Funds - Federal Skilled Workers section.

For a family of 3 it states that you are required to bring $18,097. This is listed in Canadian dollars.

We strongly suggest that you confirm this amount by going to the CIC Website in the Proof of Funds - Federal Skilled Workers section.

It also states that you do not have to show that you have these funds if:

- you have a valid offer of arranged employment in Canada AND
- you are currently working or authorized to work in Canada.

You can find some additional information on how to bring your funds in our Settlement.Org How do I bring money into Canada (proof of funds)? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
