Not really correct. The CRA has a number of factors they consider when determining if someone is an employee or not. Do they have a permanent establishment (office, stall) with the employer for example? Do they take instruction on a regular basis from the employer? Do they have other means of income?

One can be paid via Accounts Payable after presenting an invoice similiar to a consultant, but still ultimately be deemed to be an employee by CRA.
