I need your help please guys.
Can I use 100% gift deed as POF for family of 3 in Canada Express Entry FSW program?

Option 1. I would be the PA and my Sister(in Canada) is willing to help. But i guess the only way is to gift the Money through our Dad and dad do a gift deed to help our process.

Option 2 : My sister help with the amount and find a way to transfer it to my Husband which we will present my Husband's account for POF.
Please Guys, Is there a better option that can be recommended?
Option 3: Your sister transfers to you and you transfer to your husband as your contribution. Present your husband's acc as POF. He should also try build his account over time.
Even if you get the full funds from your sister, spend from it while your husband builds his account, then you can send like 50% as your contribution.

Most separated women and some women as they don't wanna import.

Dating and relationships are scary overall.. dangerous ground.
When you enter dating with ground rules everyone sits right.
No abuse. No cheating. When you start a job you look at the contract, why enter a lifelong venture with no ground rules at all. There should be basic deal breakers, let the person know. I don tire! Let everyone do what they like

Ok. There is double standard here. Men abuses are seen as normal but you wonder what kills the men so early after their marriages. Society even sees you as a weakling as other women see you to be unromantic when you complain. To spend husband money dey sweet according to women but quarrel the men all day.
Who the hell are these women who would say someone is unromantic complaining about abuse. We will do better when we stop living for society. Leave society and do what matters to YOU. You can never please society.

On the bold, if you are in Canada with open eyes, you will be see it, women turned to side chicks is on the rise unless if you don't see anything there.

If men react or act as women act, no marriage will be standing. That's the truth.
Ok married women or single women turned to side chicks?
See everyone should protect them selves first. You should not die in marriage. You should enjoy it and not endure slaps or verbal abuse everyday.

Men are everyday victims of women abuses. Most men suck them up. Na when they turn some people to side chicks their eyes go open.
Why? Haven't men left abusive relationships? Why suck it up? Why not use every resource available to you to leave that situation? So are you saying women should suck it up when men abuse them? And what's with the side chick thing, I don't get it?

Yes. In Nigeria the man cheats or beat you finish, na the woman go still beg because no money, no where to go to, no body will marry you again that's what people will tell you. Give an oppressed person power and see what happens.

my airbnb host works with the family court. Said many of the cases with them are Nigerians and Indians. Asked me to be careful who i date or marry. Said even tho some Nigerian men get am for body no one deserves the kind of things some women put them through here. Some men are paying spouse support, child support and yet cant see the kids as they please. She advice me not to see marriage as we see it in Nigeria. Say no be by force. Coming from a married woman o cheesy
Welcome, you bring groundnut? I agree with her. In Nigeria even courts can't find the man if he doesn't pay child support. Some judges award 5k for 2 kids. Marriage is only by force in Nigeria because the lady has no money or laws to back her up if she's been maltreated. Give Nigeria the laws that protect women abroad and see how many marriages will remain. Is it not in Lagos a friend had to borrow a guy friend to pose as her husband before she could rent a house. I wanted to cut my hair in Niger, brother barber say I should bring letter from my husband, I just entered Abuja. Yes, pray and shine your eyes and you will be fine

Babe, I am a female. I don't know for Canada but in Nigeria, I have friends who don't want to work. Their own is to go for school run, go to gym, rub cream and apply make up. They are very good cooks but won't want to do any business in that line. They are fufilled being house wives. I also had some male friends in school who had ambition of marrying complete house wives.

These fears are real!
You can only do housewife in Canada if hubby is earning very well/you are still schooling or it just makes better financial sense if you have small kids who haven't started kindergarten.
If course we know things are happening, and definitely there are bad wives/husbands but a good man should not fear. No lady would wake up and without provocation want to start struggling as a single mom, it's not easy.
I know a couple, the lady was a housewife in Nigeria, hubby was earning well, she COMPLETELY TRUSTED him. On getting to Canada, madam wanted to use his laptop to apply for jobs, only to discover things, he was cheating. Unfortunately madam was pregnant, that was the only thing that kept her there, when she finds her feet and leaves him, people will say women have started, forgetting the hurt and betrayal.
Not everything is white and black. A good person has nothing to fear. Marriages are still working out well in the 'abroad'

The CRA rep that processed mine asked me for the date I migrated to Canada, after which he asked me if I earned 5000 last year and told me it doesn't have to be in Canada. I am sure if there was an issue with me migrating to Canada this year, he would have told me. Besides, the application was successful and I have already been paid the benefit
At this point it is a fluid situation, they just want to give out money. Later on we will see what happens. It's all good jare.

You see, my confusion actually stems from the bolded part in your screenshot - "The income does not have to be earned in Canada, but you need to reside in Canada". Not sure if that is speaking to general residency requirement or one is expected to have been residing in Canada while earning the income (like rental income and dividend from one's home country).

Maybe I am the one overthinking this angry
Correct

The tenses look plain to me sha.

It does not need to have been earned in canada (past tense)

You need to reside in canada (present tense)

They did not say 'you need to have been residing in canada' (past tense). Therefore so long as you are residing in canada, 5k earned no matter where is good to go.

Someone on my group posted this... "I just got off the phone with cra, and the rep said the clause to this is that even though you earned the 5k outside of Canada �� , but you must be a resident at the time of earning it outside the country" The matter is somehow

My wife has been through reassessment twice. one was done pretty fast i.e in about 3 weeks, the other took 6 months, and all these were before Covid.

I kind of sense that as they want to get the money out ASAP. It's just like tax returns online, they quickly get out the payment and always go back to discreetly audit everyone. With CRA, back dated interest would also be added on top of the payment.
Better to clarify by calling first than goofing.
Exactly. I got returns quickly, I reassessed and over 3 weeks I haven't heard from them. Spent 6hours trying to call and I didn't speak to anyone. They expect people to do the right thing and apply only if they qualify

I won't rely on Nairaland for such information. It might be a good idea to call for clarification. If to go by the criteria, the person would not qualify. Some may get the money without qualifying only for CRA to come after that person the next tax year.
Lots of people are going to pay back. The system is on automatic qualification, it expects you to apply only if you qualify. They will do the auditing later and people are going to be paying back.
