Please ensure that the funds are readily available and never use your real property equity as a proof of settlement funds. Also, any borrowed money from someone will not be counted as a proof of settlement funds. You can only use your money to pay for the living costs of your family, even if they are not coming with you to Canada.
If your spouse is also coming with you, then you can show his or her money together as a joint account.
For proof of funds, you must provide official letters from financial institutions or banks where you have kept your money.
