Top 5 part-time jobs in Canada for International students

Teaching Assistants

The Teaching assistant positions are primarily for international students and are usually easy to acquire. The TA position is a great learning curve for students as it allows them to grow and explore their field of study while pursuing academics. It also bridges the gap between the concerned professor and the student while being able to make some earnings. The TA postings are usually available within the university or college premises, reducing travel expenditure.

Ride-share Driver

Ride-share applications like Lyft & Uber are popular within the student community in Canada. This job offers flexibility and liberty to set work timings and operational hours. International students must be over 21 to become eligible for this job. A driver’s license, a smartphone, and a valid driver’s license are other requirements for this job.


Tutoring is similar to the TA position, which includes training and assisting students. This learning experience gives the student flexibility to earn, set prices, and manage work hours. Students get to grow in knowledge in their field of academics and become economically stable.

Server/ bartender/ mixology

Bartending and server jobs for international students allow flexibility with working hours and earnings. Students tend to cash in extra income through tips and other perks. Canada maintains pre-tipping rates that benefit the workers with a standard rate of 15-18% giving $ 200-$400 cash as additional tips.


Freelancing is one of the most sought-after job sections in today’s world. Students can look for freelance opportunities within academics and otherwise with decent earnings.
