IRCC has updated Canada PR Fees & Proof of Funds Requirement

The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have announced changes to the Canada Permanent Resident (PR) Visa Fees and proof of funds criteria for Express Entry submissions.

Commencing May 28, 2024, all Express Entry candidates will be mandated to adhere to new directives regarding their financial capacity. Additionally, applicants must ensure their profiles are updated by May 27, 2024, to align with the revised prerequisites.

Importance of Proof of Funds Proof of funds holds substantial importance in immigration procedures, validating that applicants possess the financial resources necessary to sustain themselves and their dependents upon relocation to the prospective country. It serves as verification of the ability to cover various expenses such as housing, settlement fees, and other essential living costs.

Updated Proof of Funds Requirement Table as of 28 May 2024:

Significance of Proof of Funds

Proof of funds holds mandatory status across various immigration programs, including the federal Express Entry System, ensuring that migrants can establish themselves independently in the host country without relying on public assistance. It assists immigration authorities in assessing an applicant's potential to integrate into the new society and contribute positively to the economy.

Prospective immigrants are strongly advised to promptly familiarize themselves with the revised requirements and ensure their profiles are compliant before the May 27, 2024, deadline. Failure to update profiles or meet the revised proof of funds criteria could result in application delays or rejections. It is imperative for applicants to proactively address these changes to facilitate a seamless immigration process.
