If you're looking to work at home in Canada, this post will constantly be updating with the companies and jobs that you can get.
I realized after reading many comments on my site and YouTube channel, that many of the online job postings you see everywhere are for the U.S. only.
This is a problem. So, because I believe everyone should be able to work from home, no matter what country you're in, I've decided to create a separate online jobs page for each country you can legally work from home in.
Here are some of the companies with work-from-home jobs that you can get in Canada:
Tesla, as you probably know, is the electric car and technology company started by Elon Musk.
Sometimes, you will see them hire for work-from-home jobs in Canada for positions like a Support Specialist.
Jungle Scout is an all-in-one platform for selling things on Amazon.
Here, you can also find online jobs for Canadians. One example is the Big Data Engineer position.
You can also expect some nice benefits like insurance plans, company equity, and more.
ICUC Social is a social media management services company. Their parent company, Dentsu Aegis, has a website that you will be redirected to for jobs.
I've seen remote job openings here for Canada like the Social Media Specialist and Bilingual Social Media Analyst positions.
Aha! is a roadmap software company that always has a TON of work-from-home jobs available around the world.
For Canada, as well as many other countries, you can usually find lots of job openings in the customer service, engineering, and marketing fields.
Change Healthcare is a healthcare technology and business solutions company.
They usually have a few different types of work-from-home jobs available like the Project Manager, Software Developer, or Business Intelligence Analyst positions.
Concentrix is a business services company that will sometimes have some work-from-home customer service, sales, or other positions available for the U.S. and Canada.
EasyCare is a vehicle coverage and maintenance company that also occasionally has some work-from-home jobs available in Canada.
They won't usually have as many options as some of the other sites on this list, but you might check their jobs page from time-to-time.
Enterprise Holdings is the parent company of Enterprise, Alamo, and National care rental services.
Here, you can sometimes find some work-from-home jobs in the U.S. and Canada.
A lot of times, the remote positions will be related to customer service.
Shopify is an ecommerce platform for selling online, on social media, or in person that happens to be headquartered in Canada.
Whenever you check their jobs page, you should be able to find a few openings that let you work at home in Canada.
For instance, while writing this post, I see three Shopify Support Advisor positions as well as a few others hiring in Canada.
TTEC is a business process outsourcing company.
Here, you can probably find a remote customer service job or two available for Canada just about any time you check.
Tools to help with these jobs:
Many of these jobs require experience with or constant use of different tools to get the best job done. I've listed some of them below so you can familiarize yourself with them and be more effective at your online position.
- Grammarly is a free editing browser extension that helps with grammar and punctuation. It's great for writing, editing, transcription, and other related jobs.
- Microsoft Office is a suite of products like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel. They help with all sorts of tasks that a business, professional, or student might need to perform.
- Customer support headsets are very helpful and often required for customer support jobs from home. You want one that has a good mic, wired connection, and maybe noise cancelling.
- SoloLearn is a free resource that you can get on your phone or other device for learning code languages. I've found it's one of the best ways to learn CSS, HTML, Python, or just about any other programming language.
- This tutorial helps you set up a blog with WordPress in just 3 steps. If you ever want to go into freelancing, need writing examples for a job, or want to start a business, I recommend you set up a site with that tutorial. It will save you money and get you up and running quickly with a fully optimized, customizable site.
- TypingTest.com helps you figure out what your word per minute typing speed is. Many transcription and writing companies will require a 50 or 60 wpm typing speed, so you need to use a test like this to see where you're at. It's a completely free test to take.
- Google Drive is a suite of products that include Google Slides, Google Docs, Google Sheets, and much more. It is free to use with your Gmail account and is fairly similar to Microsoft Office. Many employers require that you be familiar with using these resources for day-today operations, so I recommend you try them out.

- Skype is a service that lets you make video chatting easy. This is something I always recommend you get familiar with if you're going for a tutoring job that's home-based. You usually use a Skype or something similar to do the online teaching.
- A USB wired mouse is something you will need for a lot of home office setups. Most companies seem to prefer that you have a USB mouse that directly plugged into your computer as opposed to being wireless. This is probably because wired connections are typically more reliable.
- A USB wired keyboard, like a USB wired mouse, is something many companies require for your home office setup. A keyboard that is directly plugged into a computer tends to be more reliable than a wireless one.
- An HD webcam, is something you may need to do video chat jobs like online tutoring.
