Default How much money do you need to get in on a TWP?

Hi all!

My fiance (sorry, that had to be dropped in as he proposed last week!!) and I are planning on going for the TWP route.

Does anyone know how much money we need to have in the bank to be able to get into the country on a TWP??

Thanks

laura

Not a penny - you only need proof of cash stashed away if your coming in on a PR.

Congrats on the proposal by the way

I thought that was the case, so thats great news for us.

The savings we have now are likely to be going on the recce trip and combined wedding in Vancouver but I didn't want to start spending in case we needed the amount I knew was a pre-requisite for PR

Thank you

Also the added bonus that you don't need proof of funds if you convert that TWP to PR via the fast track route.....

However, I wouldn't spend it on anything frivolous, it costs a lot to set yourself up here...

TWP is electrician, once he has done his Canadian exams he'll be a construction electrician

And thank you very much

If you are applying for PR with a job offer from outside Canada do you still need a certain amount of money? I understood that it was EITHER OR, i.e. proof of funds or proof of job offer.
