There is no clear answer to your question.
But generally both the CRA and Employment Standards consider who directs how they do the job, who sets the days and hours of work, who owns the materials, whether they can work for others etc.
Both also consider what the contract looks like and it helps you to have a contract with a corporation rather than with an individual.
It would also be best if they invoiced you, on their letterhead, setting out the hours that they worked, their rate etc
Does that help?
It is for sure. I am sorry about that.
