Default Too much money

Hello ,

I am going for an interview 13th of may and i was told that if you take money more than the amount needed " from your father like how i got it " it would be a problem coz they will want this money to be yours not someone else's.

My problem is that i have about 30000 $ all from my father and they only need about 3000 $ and someone got refused becoz he didn't make the money himself they want you to own the money to to borrow it, so can someone tell me any information about this case ? i already have the bank statement is there any solution please.

CIC are crystal clear that all funds have to be unencumbered....ie not borrowed from anyone, family or not.

The point being that if you cant make enough in your own country to meet that requirement, Canada is not going to be any easier to get on in.


What sort of interview? If its a job interview and you come to canada on the back of that then proof of funds is a not issue.

As Iain said, the funds cannot be borrowed - and they may ask you to prove that they are not.

But what do you need funds for? I'm confused about what you are having an interview for, and also what you think you need $3000 for - proof of funds would be more than that, even for just one person?

You need $10.833 for a single person (OWN money, not borrowed). Unless you have Arranged Employment/are working in Canada on a valid work permit.

Provided the money is a gift and you do not need to repay it (ever) then it is "unencumbered" as far as the Visa Officers are concerned.
