Hi
Good morning all
Recently I got the papers and visa for landing.
Planning to land at Toronto in June. Planning to stay initially only for 2weeks, and may be after few months to shift permanently.


Have few questions-
1. What kind of proof I should show as proof of funds, my account statement overseas will do? As I plan to stay only for 2weeks ( me and family- wife and 2kids) how much money I should carry?
2. How can I know about SIN offices nearby to my place of stay?
thanks and regards

1. A recent bank statement from your overseas bank will be sufficient for proof of funds.
2. You would need a few thousand to survive for a couple of weeks.
3. You look for a Service Canada office for your SIN

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your questions with us.

Regarding your second question,

2. How can I know about SIN offices nearby to my place of stay?


You can find some helpful information and some links to where to find the nearest offices in our Settlement.Org How do I get a Social Insurance Number (SIN)? 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.
