What is Coworking Toronto?

Welcome!

CoworkingToronto is an innovative collective of independent coworking spaces from across the GTA. Our collective is currently comprised of
15 ‘genuine’ coworking spaces in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

We work together to spread the word about coworking, we share best practices to strengthen our unique communities, and we are proof that traditional ‘competitors’ can collaborate in the new shared economy.

Our goal is to make this website an online community hub for both operators and members of coworking spaces in the GTA. We want to help build better business communities, spread the word about other movements like Jellys and BarCamps, and help foster collaboration and innovation.

We are shaping the future of work in Toronto.

CoworkingToronto Day 2015 Event Calendar

CT_DayCoworking has grown in Toronto, gaining attention from media and other cities from around the world, but more importantly as we come together to share best practices and strengthen the local coworking industry, our spaces are better able to support the entrepreneurs, startups, freelancers, independents, consultants, and small businesses of Toronto.

 

We’re celebrating by making CoworkingToronto Day official on Feb 24, 2015, and even Toronto’s Mayor has joined in with a proclamation.

 

We’ll be documenting festivities on social media with #CoworkingTorontoDay

 

And what is to celebrate? Have a look:

 

According to the 2014 Annual Survey from Staples Canada, coworking can help telecommuters:

  • – 11% of Canadians telecommute with a flexible arrangement to work anywhere
  • – 74% of telecommuters claim to have a better work-life balance
  • – 65% of employers who allow telecommuting claim their employees are happier

 

According to Deskmag surveys from 2012 to 2014, coworking can help independent workers:

  • – 58% of members were working from home before joining a coworking space
  • – 80% of members acknowledged the business network of a coworking space had a positive impact on independent workers
  • – 42% of members join coworking spaces for the knowledge sharing
  • – 47% enjoy moral support from fellow members
  • – 48% often share contacts of other professionals
  • – 68% of coworkers report an improved focus
  • – 71% of coworkers report an increased creativity

 

And we think that is 100% reason to celebrate!
