The Best Affiliate Program Networks for Canadians ©

Finding the best affiliate program network in Canada is serious business that can have a major impact on your online income. There are so many networks, each with their own terms and conditions, and it’s common for individual affiliate programs to have their own rules on top of that. Some networks have a higher payout threshold for Canadians, for example, and many individual affiliate programs may not accept Canadians at all.

Canadian affiliate marketers require a network that accommodates them with a reasonable selection of Canadian merchants, as well as those outside of Canada who welcome affiliate marketers here. We also require features that make it easy to find those merchants, such as a country search parameters. A good selection of “borderless” affiliate programs, such as info-products or web-based services, help us to round out our offers while still appealing to Canadian shoppers. Additionally, we need reasonable terms and conditions that don’t penalize us for living in this country.

The legwork involved with finding Canadian affiliate programs can be exhausting.  I’m going to cut your work in half by sharing the affiliate program networks that have worked best for me over almost 20 years of working online in Canada.

    Interesting perspective on affiliate marketing. My personal experience with being successful in affiliate marketing comes from having the right platform and having hands on training provided by someone who has extensive experience. Systems work people fail – is such a true statement. I am fortunate enough to be part of a group that enabled me to use the system/platform you are trained on to create my own business, while still building, growing and scaling my affiliate business through them. Long term success is having continuous training and business scaling with not only services (digital products) but physical products as well.

    Hello and thank you. I have millions of questions, but I will try to focus. I am new to all of this. I live i Quebec and I just launched a little t-shirt online store with my graphics on them. I am with Shopify and having a difficult time to understand promotion. I would like to do drop-shipping with Shopify app called Oberlo app. Now I have 2 questions. I am blocked not selling anything. I have a store, a domaine and stock. So, I dont have a tax #, as lots of drop-shipper needs to give to the merchant, can we go around that, until I start making a bit of money? and what is the best way to promote those products for a green person like me? Are Facebook ads good? Do you know of good products to get to start with with a minimum cost, under $100? I know there is more then 2 questions, but I do have a million more…lol
    Thank you,
    I would really appreciate your help. I really want to make this work. I hear of all those people making lots of money selling online and I want some of that pie. I am not asking for millions, but enough so I can work less physically and work more with my head on my laptop.
    Christine 🙂

      Hi Christine, welcome to the world of eCommerce!

      The most effective, economical online marketing options are content marketing, sponsored content on blogs, and social media advertising. Your merchandise is a good fit for Facebook, but do some research about how to write Facebook ad’s and how to find your audience there. It can become a money pit without some knowledge.

      For popular products, check out the post 10 Hot Product Niches to Sell or Drop Ship Online in Canada. You can find out where to source products in the post Drop Shipping / Wholesale for Canadian Sellers.

      We don’t provide tax info because it’s constantly changing. Always check with an accountant rather than making a decision based on what you read online.

    Avantlink Canadian is growing but I still use both that and the US one. Agreed that digital products are the easiest to sell with no shipping. Great list but I’d add CJ.

    I’ve only been affiliate marketing for about 2 years but since joining through MTTB my commissions went through the roof! in 7 months flat I broke 6 figures, no kidding. I’m still not making 6 figures every month but I’m going to! Honestly, I still can’t believe it LOL.

    Another ShareaSale fan here. I use Click Bank a lot too. The latter has been a favourite lately because I’m writing an ebook and they have a lot of programs that fit right into that format. Gret list.

    I wasn’t expecting so many choices. I guess they’re catching on that Canadians=money.

    WOOHOO! Lots of cash coming right up! I’ve been staying in Shareasale mostly because it’s comfortable. I’m a little intimidated by learning new stuff especially when it comes to business. Right now I just have a mailing list & social but my blog will be up this summer. Exciting things to come!
