Hi everybody,

I am currently living in Canada would like to work as a freelance translator here.
Is there any freelance translator here who could tell me how to get started? What do I need to do? How do I get a tax number if I need one?
Thank you very much for your help!

Contact your provincial translators association Jan 30, 2017

Since your personal data doesn't indicate your location in Canada, I can only recommend using Google to find the relevant translators association. Every province has one.

You get a tax number (if you need one) at Revenue Canada
Other things may depend on the province you are in.
