Being Denied to Canada Because of Financial Grounds

You must satisfy an officer that sufficient arrangements for care and support are in place, which does not involve any social assistance. This results from a failure to prove your ability to support yourself and your family financially. If you cannot prove that you have a meaningful income from skilled work, entrepreneurship or investments, you may be deemed a burden or potential burden to the Canadian government and denied entry to Canada as a result. If an officer is not satisfied with your financial submissions, you will be refused entry.

How Much Money Do I Need to Immigrate to Canada?

The amount of money needed to be admissible to Canada depends on how long you will be staying in Canada. It also depends on whether you are entering under a visa or not. There are several variables that determine how much money you will need to enter. For example, if you are applying for Express Entry you will need $12,669 in Canadian dollars to enter. If you have a spouse and a child applying with you for Express Entry you will need $19,390 Canadian dollars to immigrate.

You should consult an immigration professional to determine how much money you will need before you arrive in Canada.

How VisaPlace Can Help You Enter Canada

Normally, if you are inadmissible to Canada, you will not be allowed to enter, unless you know how to prepare the "right" paperwork. If you have a "reason" to travel to Canada that is justified in the circumstances, you may be issued a temporary resident permit (TRP). When it comes to inadmissibility, VisaPlace has years of experience to help those who are worried or struggle with getting accepted into Canada.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
