      Good day Walter,

      To be honest bonuses have gone down . So far the highest I would say is in Calgary, $300 for 20 trips in total payout in first 90 days.

      There used to be bonuses like $1000 for your first 100 trips if completed in your first 90 days. But, I guess it is gone now.

      It can change any months to higher or lower, so I left it at $1000 to hope for better in future.

      Hopefully Uber in Canada will start working more closely with Bloggers, I would love to get insights to their structure and help other drivers.

    Hi Igor,

    Thanks a lot for such detailed information all in one place!

    1 question: If I have a valid license, car registration, insurance from US, do you know if I will be able to join and drive UberEATs in GTA?

    I am in US but just received my PR in Canada and planning to stay in GTA for 3months. So I want to know if this is a good option for me?
