It really all depends on your residency status, which can be determined here https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/replies/2647682

Reporting foreign income on your Canadian tax return can get tricky, so for tax purposes, your residency status is the first thing the CRA wants to know.

Non-residents and deemed non-residents - report your income from Canadian sources such as the taxable part of your scholarships, fellowships, bursaries, net research grants, income from a business without a permanent establishment in Canada, and taxable capital gains from disposing of taxable Canadian property.

Deemed residents - report your world gross income. World income is income from all sources both inside and outside Canada.

Because of the many variables, please review the links provided below for a greater understanding of your tax obligations as a newcomer to Canada.
