how much amount in canadian dollars we can carry to canada

Discussion in 'Skilled Worker / Professional Immigration' started by gmohiuddin, Aug 23, 2010.

  1. how much canadian dollars we can carry when going to canada, what is the maximum limit

    if me, my wife, one child and one infant are going to canada then how much Canadian dollars (maximum) we can carry

    awaiting to see your experiences
  2. There is no maximum limit

    However, if you are carrying more than 10.000$ you have to declare them, don't worry you don't have to pay any taxes on them (if you are doing a landing of course)
  3. Bumped to link with this post:
    So many conflicting posts... Which one needs the answer now?
  4. All ur recent posts about 12 of them almost simultaneously are misleading and erratic. I hope u're not playing on our sensibilities.
  5. Dear gmohiuddin,

    You need $20,599 for 4 members including you.
    These amounts are updated every year, so, check this page for most updated information, when you r about to fly:

    CIC suggests bring as much money as possible to make moving and finding a home in Canada easier.There isn't any maximum limit.

    NOTE: If you have Arranged Employment Offer then you dont need to show these funds.

    But at the same time find out how much it costs to live where you are planning to settle in Canada.

    The Government of Canada does not provide financial support to new skilled worker immigrants.

    Disclosure of funds

    If you are carrying more than C$10,000, tell a Canadian official when you arrive in Canada. If you do not tell an official, you may be fined or put in prison.

    These funds could be in the form of:

    cash securities in bearer form (for example, stocks, bonds, debentures, treasury bills) or negotiable instruments in bearer form (for example, bankers’ drafts, cheques, travellers’ cheques or money orders).

    Hope it helps
