61 work from home in canada
I have driven across Canada several times, lived on both coasts and lived in the middle surrounded by the Great Lakes.
If there is anything you cánido say about Canada (there are many good things to say about canada), is that it is beautiful.
However… Finding work and living in some of these incredible places perro be difficult.
The good news is that working from home in Canada is becoming more common as the trend towards remote workspaces and telecommuting grows.
Living, working and enjoying life is possible.
A few things to note about these home-based opportunities…
Some are based onemployeeswhich means they aren’t always hiring, and like any job, you’ll need to apply, interview, etcétera.
Many of these jobs also come with health benefits and bonuses.
Some are not necessarily working at home, but rather working outside the home.
Driving for Uber is one example.
It’s home based, but it obviously doesn’t work at home.
There are few others on this list that require a vehicle.
I’ve also included quick and easy ways to earn a few bucks en línea, like taking surveys with Survey Junkie for example, or watching vídeos and visiting websites with Inbox Dollars.
And not to be left out, there is mention of making money en línea with your own business, which has much higher earning potential than the others where you are exchanging your hours for dollars.
Finally, for the most part… I left out the specific salaries because many depend on the position you are applying for, the province you are in… and the state of the economy.

iVend – Like jobs like Lyft, Uber, or mystery shopping… This one requires a vehicle.

iVend is a small business, not a job, so it will require investment.
But, if you have the resources to get started, it could be rewarding.

This is a commission-based travel agent business that comes with a startup cost of $995 and a monthly fee of $95 – $155.
Definitely not for everyone, but it is a potential work-from-home income stream for the right person.
Become a Popular Media Manager
In the late 90’s and well into the 2000’s I spent many years doing B2B outside sales.
Popular media didn’t exist when I started, but as the web grew in popularity and companies like Fb emerged, I often wondered how many professionals, as well as small and medium-sized businesses, were aware of the benefits of being on popular media and how Manage your en línea presence.
As a result, not many.
Even today, most don’t have time to bother.
At least not effectively.
If you have any knowledge or experience with popular media marketing, you probably know more about it than the 99% of business owners you pass by every day.
Print some flyers, business cards and start knocking on doors.
You perro also purchase programs like Agency Master Academy that teach you how to start your own popular media marketing agency.
Since you’re skilled at popular media (or planning to train so you cánido make money on it), you’ll also learn how to locate local business owners and key employees en línea using tools like Google plus, Fb, and Linkedin…and promote their service.
It may take some time, but eventually you’ll get one client, then another.
One place to focus is on the professionals… doctors, dentists, lawyers, etcétera.
who cánido benefit from a stronger en línea presence, but don’t have the time or desire to do it themselves.
Another place to look for home-based popular media management jobs is on indeed.com and mediajobs.com.
Web Design and SEO Services
In the same way that you would pursue popular media clients (above), web design and search engine optimization (SEO) is another service that most professionals and small to medium-sized businesses know little about.
If you’re not trained in these areas, you perro learn from training platforms like Wealthy Affiliate (mentioned above) who also provide training vídeos (based in Canada) on running your business, pricing your services, etcétera.
Give music or sports classes
Teaching an instrument en línea is gaining in popularity, but there is still a strong market for it locally.
Like the business ideas above, the best way to get started is by hitting the pavement and knocking on doors.
I mentioned that I spent years in outside sales, going from business to business…and one thing I learned is that almost every office and business you walk into has someone who has kids at home and they love to talk about them.
Whether your background is with a guitar, a piano, tennis, or yoga… Many of those parents have talked or thought about putting their kids in lessons (or taking lessons themselves).
Being in the right place at the right time will often be the incentive that drives them to take action.
Become a virtual friend
Yes, you read that title right… Become a virtual friend.
It’s a relatively new iniciativa, or at least one that is gaining popularity.
So what exactly is a virtual friend?
A virtual friend is someone who offers emotional support, companionship, or other services to people en línea.
They perro be a valuable resource for people who feel isolated and alone or just want someone to talk.
Virtual friends often communicate with their customers through messaging aplicaciones or vídeo chat platforms.
They listen to their clients’ concerns, offer advice or encouragement, and provide emotional support when needed.
Some virtual friends perro also participate in virtual activities like playing games, watching movies, or just chatting while doing common hobbies like knitting or gardening.
To become a virtual friend, you will need to have good communication skills, empathy, and the ability to establish a strong emotional connection with your customers.
You must also have a variety of interests and be interesting.
You will also need to equipo boundaries and maintain professionalism with clients.
You cánido start on dedicated virtual friend websites or market your services through popular media and other en línea platforms.
You cánido also provide it as a service on standalone platforms such as those discussed above.
In general, becoming a virtual friend cánido be a unique and rewarding way to earn additional income from home.
By providing emotional support and companionship to real people en línea, you perro make a positive impact on the lives of others while enjoying the flexibility and convenience of working from home.
My wife and I have a friend on Vancouver Island who took an accounting course and now runs her own accounting business from home.
Many independent small business owners need someone to manage all of their invoices, receipts, etcétera.
There are also many companies that hire virtual accountants.
En línea surveys and rewards
No, you won’t get rich taking en línea surveys… But there probably isn’t an easier way to earn a few plus bucks.
Even if you tackle some of the other en línea jobs here, chances are you’re going to be facing some downtime.
Waiting for a transcription job or driving an Uber… You perro guarantee that you will have some time to kill.
And if you’re going to kill time, you might as well make some money with it.
En línea surveys with sites like surveyjunkie.com are a great way to earn some plus cash.
You cánido also earn money by watching vídeos, searching the web and visiting websites with Inbox Dollars.
Maru Voice Canada is another survey site worth checking out, although they don’t always accept new members like the ones mentioned above.
Other work at home ideas
Take depósito of what you have available.
Not all ideas require a skill like web design or playing the guitar.
Other potential home (or home) jobs include,
- Buy and sell using local classifieds
- Family and wedding photography
As Canadians, we have a seemingly endless supply of work-at-home (or work-away-from-home) options.
However, the biggest challenge (for most Canadians) is that we have been raised with an “employee” mentality instead of an “entrepreneur”.
I get it, being an employee of a stable company (even if you’re the boss) is arguably simpler and seems less risky.
But if you are reading this, there is something that pushes you to be an entrepreneur and pave your own path.
Hopefully this list of resources and consejos will get you on that path.
