CIC News
Published: May 1, 2001

Q. Once the application process is completed, what is the process at the time of landing?

Answer: At landing, the validity of landing documents, its consistency with passport information, and validity of passports will be verified. You will be asked to provide a list of any belongings that you intend to have follow you to Canada within 12 months of landing.

You may be asked, also, to demonstrate the possession of sufficient settlement funds. The combination of assets on hand and those in financial institutions that are transferable should suffice.

The landing documents will be attached to your passport at the end of the process.
