The Canadian government requires financial resources indicated in the Sponsorship Cost Table that are roughly equivalent to local social assistance rate figures. For a family of four the Estimated Total Annual Settlement Cost (which includes one-time start-up costs and 12 months of income support) is $27,000. But having said that, we know that a more realistic cost to live here is about $40,000 and that is our fundraising goal.
