Starting as a child actor, Reid voiced the title character in Franklin from 1997 to 2004.

In 2005, Reid played the role of Darrell Fox in the made-for-television movie Terry which dramatized Terry Fox's historic run for cancer research. In 2007, he appeared in the Naturally, Sadie episode "As the Whirly Turns". In 2009, Reid guest-starred in the Degrassi: The Next Generation episode "Danger Zone".
Reid's first leading role in a feature film was Farley Gordon in Score: A Hockey Musical, which premiered at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. He then played several guest roles on television, including in the police drama Rookie Blue (2012) and the drama series Cracked (2013). In 2013, he also appeared in the CW web series Backpackers. In 2015, Reid appeared briefly in the first episode of Annie Murphy's CBC television series The Plateaus. The same year, he played the lead role in the ABC Family comedy series Kevin From Work.

Reid later embarked on a tour across North America to support his then-upcoming second album. However, a number of the original dates had to be indefinitely postponed midway through the tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The album, titled Gemini, was released on May 29, 2020.
Reid announced his engagement to actress Clare Stone on December 31, 2018. They were married on July 25, 2020. Reid is a dual Canadian-US citizen.
