Default Recce trip questions

Received our visas in late 2009 and heading on a 1 week trip on 13/2/10 to apply for our PR cards so have a few questions :

1. How much money do we actually need to carry with us for this trip, given that we're only staying for a week this time (2 adults+3 kids) ?
2. Should we expect any strange questions from Immigration about the fact that we're only staying for a week now ? Reason we're only vsiting for a week is that we're just not ready for the full move yet, need to finish up some stuff in Europe before we move permanently. Visas expire in Apr so have to be there before then.

Thanks

I assume you're 'landing' on this trip and haven't done so previously?

If you're landing, then you'll need to show proof of funds - for 5 of you I believe it's $22,831. The money must be unencumbered, a recent bank statement or two will do. But if you've already landed, then obviously you've already done this so it's not needed again.

And no, it won't matter that you're only staying for a week. You could turn around and get on the same plane back to the UK if you wanted! This Wiki article may help.............http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Landing_as_PR-Canada

Have fun.
