Hello, I read somewhere in this forum only that it is better to open an account at Scotiabank or any other Canadian bank, transfer the funds and then get a balance statement. As balance statements from that of one's home country are not accepted by the officer during landing formalities ? Is that true ? Also, I got to show an amount of 13000 CAD as proof of funds. Can that be in cash that I carry+bank account (or) only in bank account and get more seperately in cash ? The reason I am asking is, can I first deposit the 13000 in bank, get a statement and then withdraw some of it in cash ? Or the entire 13000 has to be in a bank account ?
