I have independent contract income that was invoiced in 2018 but received payment in 2019. Do I report on 2018 taxes or 2019 taxes?

I have side income aside from my regular job which I completed in 2018. The invoices for the work are dated 2018. I did not receive my cheque until Feb 2019. Do I report this other income on my 2018 or 2019 return?

It should be reported in your 2018 income but you will also have an outstanding account receivable for this invoice at the end of 2018.
