Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to the Border Information Services (BIS), you can bring in any amount of money as long as you declare that amount.

They also stated that you are not taxed on the amount of money you bring into Canada. You are only taxed on goods.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, you may want to contact the Border Information Services (BIS) directly.

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.
