Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot Program: Proof of funds

Note: These numbers are based on 50% of the low income cut-off totals for rural areas. They are updated every year. You should double-check that you still have enough money to support your family if you immigrate to Canada.

You must show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family after you get to Canada, unless you’re already working in Canada under a valid work permit.

You can’t borrow this money from another person. You must be able to use this money to pay the costs of living for your family (even if they’re not coming with you).

Your proof can be 1 or more of the following

The amount of money you need to support your family depends on the size of your family. We update these amounts every year.
