Based on the preliminary results of a survey of Canadian coworking spaces, a small handful of coworking space owners and managers are working towards establishing a national trade association. The goal is to launch for Jan 2014.

Our short term goals are:

  • write a preliminary list of by-laws
  • incorporate the organisation
  • define a coworking space
  • propose a fair membership structure


The benefits to joining the organisation will include:

  • enhanced listing on the website
  • national representation for coworking spaces and small businesses
  • a national health insurance program
  • ownership of the organisation, and therefore a say in how it operates
  • a national conference and annual general meeting
