A nanny is one of the most common jobs you can find as an international student. This job is for you if you love children. Nanny’s responsibilities include caring for the children, organizing their day, taking them to school, and doing laundry.

Sales Assistant

It’s a great job to do on weekends when the streets and cities are crowded with shoppers. It is possible to work anywhere you like, including a corner shop, clothing boutique, or supermarket.

The pay is good, but sales assistants can earn small commissions for each sale they make.

Office Assistant

A cook is a popular part-time job for Indian students in Canada. Cooking includes following all food safety and hygiene protocols, as well as following the instructions. If you believe you have the ability to cook, you might be able to work as a chef in a foreign country.

Ride Sharing

Uber and Lyft have become very popular part-time jobs. The pay is excellent and you can work when you want.

The most important issue (apart from potentially rude customers) is that you need to have a car. So, you might consider becoming a bicycle courier instead. UberEATs is a popular service that delivers bicycle food to major cities. Although the hourly rate is slightly higher than driving a car at $17, it is still a very affordable option.

Dog Walker

This is not the highest-paid hourly job in Canada but it can be very rewarding. In Canada you can get 17% to 20% tip for this job. So if you’re looking for a job that can make you hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars per workweek, it’s worth working in a bar or waiting at tables.

I can tell you that it is tiring but a great job!


You’re great at whatever! Maybe Math was something you were proficient in, Science, or any other subject. In your spare time, you can use those skills by volunteering with elementary and high school children.

The average tutor in Canada is paid $16 per hour. You can charge what you like (more or lesser). Although you will have to be creative about finding students, social media has made it easier for you to do so.
