Default Parents don't need landing funds?

My parents have been floating between the UK and Canada for a couple of years now and have applied for PR status, sponsored by me. They have their medicals next week. They have an apartment here, as they stay for 4-6 months at a time. I'm reading that when they or anyone else for that matter lands, they must show the Officer proof of at least $12,000. They don't have this - furnishing the apartment cost about half of that, and airfares to and fro while I have finished school this last year has eaten up a lot of spare cash. I would guess they have about half $6,000. They have a paid-for home here (I pay the rent) and incomes, so why do they need all this extra money?

Sponsored family members are not required to have settlement funds at all.

if they are sponsored they dont need to show funds... thats the whole point of sponsorship... the sponsor is responsible for maintaining them...

Thank you all. I was getting somewhat concerned!
