2. Job Letter(combined income must be $60,000+);
3. You may not have a credit report but if you do with a score of 700+ (if any), please send me a copy.
- Equifax – please do not use, they have removed their option to print.
- TransUnion – or but you’ll have to sign up for a subscription then cancel it after you get your report;
- Or any other online available options.
4. Canadian Bank Statements (at least last 3 months) showing $4-5000 monthly deposits;
5. Student Visa Copy;
