Hi guys, I have read a lot of information on the forum with respect to proof of funds but unable to get a clear answer on my situation. If expert members could guide me on this, I will be very grateful.

I am an expat living outside my home country. I have 4 accounts dealing with 4 different banks and I need to understand If i need to get letter/statements from all banks. As per my research, none of these banks issue letters in exact required format and I will need to obtain/attach bank statements for these.

Bank 1 in Home Country: Limited money in savings accounts but more than sufficient funds in Fixed Deposits. Fixed Deposit funds in this bank alone can meet the CIC requirements. Dont have any credit card or loan from this bank.
Bank 2 in Home Country: Limited money in savings accounts, some money in fixed deposits. No credit card or loan.
Bank 3 in Residence Country: Salary account from where I do all my expenses. Not high balance maintained. Credit Card at this bank but 0 outstanding. I pay auto loan installment from this bank.
Bank 4 in Residence Country: Auto Loan from this bank, secured against car. No other savings or credit card at this bank.

I don't have a reason to hide anything as value of fixed deposits less car loan will be sufficient to meet CIC requirements. But do I really need to chase 4 banks for various information in different formats that they will provide? Will this even fit in 4 MB?

There were many members including me, who were in your shoes.
Get your senior colleague write a letter for you and notarize if possible along with it, include his/her business card.
To substantiate your claim, include any official slips like pay slips, tax slips, compensation letters. Also, please don't forget to brief your cause in LOE.
Thank you for your response. And did you guys scale through with this?

Thank
*but if I take with me 17000$ *... dont worry... anything above 12300 CAD$ should be OK :)

It is mandatory that you have unrestricted access to the funds, yes. It cannot be in a Fixed deposit/House/retirement fund etc... Has to be liquid like you said in Savings account is preferable.
Thanks

To clarify, is it acceptable to have the funds in fixed deposits at the time of submitting post ITA documents?

I am assuming your answer relates to when actually traveling to Canada. I am just wondering if I neee to break my FDs and transfer to the savings account.
Yes, while submitting documents post ITA, FD is fine. Even I have a FD now expiring in Feb. So I guess it should be fine.

Bank 1 option is the best amongst the lot. Show your FDs along with a bank letter that it can be liquidated anytime. If it’s less than 6 months, you may have to furnish the proof of source of these funds- like a gift deed/sale of assets etc. Hope this helps.

Ok. So once I submit but then PCC gets expired, while my documents are still in verification with ircc. Will they ask to get PCC again?
You ought to submit that is valid for 6 months ideally. The CIC may ask for a refreshed PCC should they feel so.

Thank you! I will definitely submit the proof for bank 1. I was only concerned if I don’t submit anything from my resident country, will that raise a red flag?
