For me, they asked for POF + other financials during the application process. Nothing upon landing other than declaration of brinign in more than CAD 10k.
Congratulations Jim. If I may ask, at what stage did they request for your POF? Also what do you mean by 'other financials'

Hello again,

Wishing us all the best of luck in our application. My question is, have you guys included the business permits upon submission of the application to CIC? Or its no longer necessary?

Thanks again in advance.

You mean business proposal/plan?

If so, well, it is not requested by the IRCC. However, if included, it makes your application strong and credible. I did not include it as a separate file. Instead, I referred to it – saying “according to my business plan, ….”

All the best for you and good luck as well.

thank u my bro , u are very active here ,i would like to know and ask u about the schedual 6a when u fill the part containing the number of the account and how much u have in it .My question is what if u have 30000 dollars and after 6 or 1 year they ask for the proof of funds but u dont have the same amount of money anymore ? because they dont ask of the POF in the first place but they ask u to put a number in your account?

Thanks. The point of POF is you prove to the IRCC that you have enough money for the first 12-month stay in Canada. So, as long as you have this amount in your account and you can present a bank statement (when requested), then no worries. It is good that your bank statement shows regular transactions.

No worries. You can send the application without it. Remember, if you cannot get the PCC, sooner or later, then you should inform the IRCC on this and mention why.

It will just delay your application... If you need pCc then havd it ready and sent across with the application... Save time and less hassles for the visa officer
