Current statement is fine. You certainly don't have to carry it all in cash. We weren't even asked for any proof. I think a lot of people aren't asked.

Just make sure the printout has all your details on it. It would perhaps be worth requesting a paper copy of your latest statement as it will come on headed paper etc. I know some people has reported problems with having an online statement printed. We used an original paper copy so there may well be posters on here with more specific experience.

I'm sure someone with more experience of this will add some input, but my take is....

If you are landing it might make sense to have Canadian Dollars at your disposal (in the form of a bankers draft) and will look probably look better to the immigration officer on arrival.
If not, what ever the currency the draft is in, it might be better in a major currency so that the immigration officer can easily check for current exchange rate value.
If the draft total value is over $10,000 you must declare that also.

You can take money out of an ATM as long as you have the right type (Maestro, Sirius etc). The money is then just deducted from your UK account at the prevailing exchange rate. It will give you the time to open a Canadian bank account
