And I am going to write about them because of the frequent questions I get where people ask, ‘How to Make Money Online in Canada?’.

7 Ways Housewives can Earn Money Online in Canada
While there are many ways to earn money online in Canada,
1. Sell Products Online
One of the best ways for housewives to earn money is by selling products online. This can be done from the comfort of your own home and time, and there are a host of different products that you can sell.
Whether you are good at making and have a knack for making handmade products, you can also sell them online. If not, you can source your products at wholesale rates from a dealer and then sell them to your customers.
If you are good at arts and crafts, you can make your own paintings, wall hangings, etc. You can also incorporate painting with fabrics and make pillow covers, bedsheets, handkerchiefs, etc. Or if you have any other DIY ideas, you can try that out and sell that as well. Basically, there are no limitations to what you can make and sell.
If you do not wish to make something yourself, you can get your products from a wholesaler. This way, you can sell clothes, home furnishings, jewelry, kitchen items, and a lot more.
I have an eCommerce company that sells top-notch products from Kashmir and it was profitable from the 3rd month of operation. And, I used just SEO to make it work. So, online space is big to get into. If that is difficult, sell on Etsy or Amazon Canada to start with.
2. Become an Online Tutor
Another amazing option for earning for housewives is online tutoring. Even if it is home tutoring or online tutoring, both are equally good options. You can start promoting your tuitions yourself via Social Media.
If you have a flair for teaching and like spending time with kids, there is no better option than this. You can do private tutoring, and being a tutor from the comfort of your own home, or even a tutor online is easy. Most of us can do it.
With tutoring, you only need to invest a few hours per week and you can earn good money out of it. These days, there are also several platforms that look especially for housewives and hire them for tutoring kids online.
3. Selling Home-Cooked Food
Food that has a homely feel is loved by everyone. And it has always been a preferred choice among hostelites, bachelors, and elderly people. And you guessed it right, economic immigrants who work in large corporations but are away from their homes drool at it.
So, if you love cooking, you can make delicious high-quality home cooked food and sell it either through an app or directly to your customers.
Once you market your food business enough and enough people know about it, you can earn good amounts of money from it.
While the competition for this may be tough, there is nothing like good-quality genuine delicious home-cooked food. Moreover, food being a necessity, you can be assured that your business will always work well.
Another great way of earning money from the comfort of your own home is through freelancing.
While there are many options that you can choose when it comes to freelancing, writing is probably the best one to consider. Providing copywriting services is an easy thing to opt for and you can excel at it easily if you are a good writer.
Writing is versatile, there is no barrier to what language you write in, plus you write on any topic that you wish. Moreover, writing isn’t just limited to websites or online portals and you can also write for magazines or newspapers.
You can write on beauty and lifestyle, travel, food, or you can even share an experience of your own. The more you write, the better you will get at it and the more opportunities for income you’ll have.
You can reach out to top digital marketing agencies in Canada and ask them if they need your services. This is the quickest way to get some work.
5. Data Entry
There are loads and loads of online data entry jobs out there. It is one of the easiest ways that you can earn money online in Canada and that too from the comfort of your own home.
If you are looking for a job that doesn’t require you to be specially skilled in something, data entry is the best option for you. You just need to have basic knowledge of a computer with basic applications like MS Office.
The money that you earn depends on the amount of work that you can get done. The work will mostly include copying and pasting text, filling things out and some basic typing. That’s easy. Isn’t it.
6. Online Surveys
Even online surveying jobs are in great demand these days. There are many websites out there that pay you for filling out surveys.
Since research companies are always looking for people who can fill out surveys for them, you have a host of different surveys to choose from.
Filling a survey won’t take you more than a few minutes and by filling out a significant number of them each month, you can earn good money.
Just make sure that you register yourself on a legitimate and trustworthy site as there are also a lot of scam websites out there.
7. Beautician Work/ Make-up
Another great option for housewives is to go for make-up or beautician work. You can take up a course for the same and then start your own work from your own home. Again you need to advertise yourself on social media.
In our country, there is a lot of demand for make-up artists and beauticians. So, this is a very important job that is also quite interesting. There are several short duration courses that you can take up for this.
All you need to do is invest in a few tools and then you are all set. After a significant time, you can start earning good amounts of money from this job.
