IRCC has revised Express Entry- Proof of Funds requirement

  • Rajneesh Kumar
  • 16 May, 2022

In the latest update, the Canadian immigration department, i.e. IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has revised the Proof of Funds (POF) requirement for Express Entry candidates for this year.

To keep Express Entry profile eligible, all Express Entry candidates need to update settlement fund numbers (as per increased POF requirement) in their respective EE profiles by June 8, 2022.

Updating profile does not change the date and time of the profile registration, hence, your rank will remain the same, in case; you are in a tiebreaker situation.

What is proof of funds and who needs it?

The POF (Proof of funds) is the definite amount you need to show IRCC to convince them that you have sufficient funds to settle in Canada. Once you get Invitation to Apply (ITA) from IRCC, you must provide written proof that you have this money. The POF requirement depends on the size of your family.

Who needs POF?

You need proof of funds to meet the minimum requirements of the

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

Updated Proof of Funds Requirement Table as of 9 June 2022
