Foreign Income Earned prior to becoming a Canadian Resident

I arrived in Canada in September 2018 and began working in October 2018. I earned Irish income between January 2018 and August 2018 (pior to relocating so not while in Canada). I have entered the date that I became a resident and entered $0 for income earned from Canadian sources for the part of the year that I was not a Canadian resident. How do I answer the following question; - What was your income from foreign sources and Canadian sourced Part XIII income for the part of the year that you were not a Canadian resident? Do I enter my net Irish income from Jan to Aug translated to CAD?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
