When it comes to work, people are almost always trying to earn more and more money and it's even better if you can earn that money from the comfort of your own home. These high paying online jobs in Canada will allow you to work from home and make tons of money doing so! Hundreds of your hard earned dollars and hours of your time are spent getting to and from work every single day so why not work from home!
In fact, in 2016 Statistics Canada determined that the average commuter spends around 52 minutes every day commuting to work. Whether you take transit or drive you also have to pay for parking passes, gas, or bus and train tickets. It can be super draining on both your mental state and your wallet.
Thanks to the internet though there is a rise in the number of people who work from home or remotely every single day. Early last year, it was reported that over 3.6 million Canadians work from the comfort of their own homes at least part of the time. That's 20% of all the workers in Canada.
There are other benefits for those 3.6 million Canadians beyond just saving time and money too. You never have to pack a lunch when you work from home, you can stay in your pajamas all day long if you want, and never have to worry about a line up at the coffee machine, microwave, or bathroom.
If you're completely sold on the idea of working from home now, you're in luck. Right now in Canada, there are thousands of work from home job opportunities online. While it can take some time to sift through all the random online jobs there are some definite gems in there.
There are also jobs for all levels of experience from entry-level positions all the way up to executives. On top of that, depending on your skills and qualifications, there is a big range of salaries, some as high as $180,000 per year. These are some of the online jobs you could apply for today.
