Proof of funds for Express Entry


LoE changes from person to person so I don’t have a sample. Once you have deposited the liquid funds in a bank, mention in the LoE about the particular deposit. You can state what items were sold that provided you with these funds. If you have any receipts to prove it, you can add those too.




I got my Ita and I am submitting my documents now. My Pof is in the form of a gift deed which was given to me 2 weeks back.
I have made the bank letter, gift deed letter and affidavit ready.
Regarding the bank statement my joint account is new and is only 4 months old.
How to provide 6 months statement.
Should I provide my joint account statement 4 months and my other savings account (my salary account) 6 months statement?


  1. My bank gave me a letter for past 6 months balance but it is displayed in USD instead of CAD. Is that fine?

  2. My Financial letter displays only last 4 digits of the account. Is that fine?



Should I provide my joint account statement 4 months and my other savings account (my salary account) 6 months statement?

Yes, provide statements for both accounts. In the letter of explanation, mention that your joint account is new so only 4 month statement is available. Also mention about the gift deed in the LoE.



Yes. Create a consolidated proof of funds letter and mention the CAD equivalent of the USD amount based on the currency rate.




@mrandmrs I submitted my application with last 6 months statements and credit card statements ( I am new to this blog ) . I Did not gave any letter from BOFA ( I have account in BOFA ) . will it be a problem ? if I get the letter how can I submit it now since I already submitted the Documents .



CIC clearly asks for a letter from the bank so you should get one and raise a CSE to submit it. It is better to submit it proactively now else CIC might ask for it at a later stage and you will end up wasting your application processing time.



@mrandmrs Thanks for your reply . just to confirm is this the link where I can raise a cse and submit document?
Also do I need to give them the credit card statements for 6 months ?

Also is there any chance that because of this my application gets a rejection ?



Yes, that is the link.

Credit card statements are not mandatory.

I don’t know whether they will reject the application or just ask for the required documents.



I have a house in US, do I have show that along with Saving and Checking account and credit card balance? House loans are huge compared to saving. Band of America’s reference letter also doesn’t have full account number.

For proof, you must get official letters from any banks or financial institutions where you’re keeping money.

Letter(s) must

be printed on the financial institution’s letterhead
include their contact information (address, telephone number and email address)
include your name
list outstanding debts such as credit card debts and loans
include, for each current bank and investment account, the
account numbers
date each account was opened
current balance of each account
average balance for the past 6 months
