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 cannot thank VisaPlace enough for their help. I had an issue with my immigration work that I needed professional help with. The team did a stellar job in making my case and I am greatly indebted to them. I worked directly with Alicea. She was extremely professional and responsive! Even after building my case and submitting my application, she was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had for several months after. I highly recommend the team and would come back in future if I have to. Thank you!
