    Ridesharing more than 20 hours as international student in Toronto?

    Thanks for your reply! Isn't it counting all my driving time, even when I just driving around the area for example? And the thing is not about getting the actual working time, but about possible problems from the government side, as I plan to apply for PR after I finish my education.
