Hi, I am landing soon in Toronto from Bangladesh. CIC expects us to show Proof of Funds equivalent to: CAD $12,164 (or USD 8995.05 for myself). I am requesting those who have already landed recently to share their experience regarding this. Did the Border Control Agency ask for this entire amount in cash or demand drafts or could you just show a bank statement from your home country showing you had the funds in your name? The reason I ask is that Bangladesh has very strict foreign currency restrictions and currently we cannot take more than USD 5000 dollars out of the country legally. This includes demand drafts, while we cannot obtain traveller's cheques from Bangladesh. So, it is quite hard for me to take this entire amount in cash with me when I land in Toronto. Also I don't feel really safe carrying all this cash on me. But, I am equally worries about it being a 'problem' after I land if I can't show the full amount. Hence, asking for recent newcomers to Canada to share their experiences in this regard while landing. Thanks!
