Welcome to Canadian Telecommuting

Hello and Welcome to the World of Telecommuting in Canada!

I decided that my researching of telecommuitng opportunities in Canada needed a permanent home so here we are! I will also be posting any wahj(work at home jobs) that are home based JOBS but not necessarily telecommuting jobs...eg..various local companies that might need a homebased worker local to their city so as to be able to pick up work once a week,etc.

Canadian Telework Association <"http://www.ivc.ca/">
Monthly newsletter. Lots of great information! This is NOT a job lisitng service!


Basic Sites for telecommuting opportunities....

The HRDC(Human Resources Developement Centre) jobbank site http://www.jobbank.gc.ca/
use various search words "home office" "home based" "work from home" Seach "Canada"

Monster as well sometimes has listings http://www.monster.ca BE CAREFUL and read carefully....a lot are disguised as jobs but are really "business opportunities".

Check local papers http://www.onlinenewspapers.com/canada.htm
Some papers have their classifies online and free access to non subscribers. Is there a job that you are qualified for that you could possibly turn into a wfhj? A lot of telecommuting opportunities arise after an employee has worked onsite for a period of time.

Charity Village http://www.charityvillage.com/
Jobs in the nonprofit sector. As well search the HRC site using the charity as the search word. Some charities don't list all their job at Charity Village as it is for paid listings.


Charitable Organizations and Paid Jobs

Some charities now hire paid work from home recruiters for their volunteer recruiting for fundraisng campaigns. They also hire paid co-ordinators to manage the home recruiters, look after the funraising oor-to-door campaign, etc. Here is a list of some of the charities that I know of....

Kidney Founation of Canada http://www.kidney.ca/index-eng.html
For the March Door-to-Door campaign. Home based recruiters are usually hired beginning of January and work approximately 20 hrs a week calling possibly volunteers for the campaign. Work usually ends by the latest mid Febrary.

March of Dimes (Ontario) http://www.dimes.on.ca/asp/home.asp
January is the Door-to-Door campaign. Homebased recruiters are hired in the fall.

CNIB http://www.cnib.ca/
May is the annual door-to-door campaign in Ontario. Homebased recruiters are hired in Jan/Feb.
