Number of gig workers doubles in 2022

March 9, 2023

Currently, 28 per cent or about 8.75 million Canadian adults are taking on a job in the gig economy — up from 13 per cent in 2022, H&R Block Canada finds in a study.

A majority (74%) of these workers say it’s a side hustle in addition to their primary source of income.

But over half of gig workers (51 per cent) say their employers aren’t aware of their side hustle, while 49 per cent report they’ve made their employer aware, according to a survey by H&R Block Canada.
