I can't get a bank statement before I come to Canada. What do I do?

International Experience Canada participants who can't get a bank statement may show the following as proof of funds when they arrive at a Canadian port of entry:

  • A letter on official letterhead from your banking institution, that:
    • is issued no more than one (1) week before your departure for Canada.
    • clearly shows your account balance.
    • is signed and preferably stamped.

Bring the original letter provided by your banking institution, not a photocopy.
