Grow and promote coworking across BC.
We are currently promoting coworking in British Columbia through various media channels, networking events, and partnerships. The society is driven to ensure the province is not only aware of coworking, but also aware of the importance of each space.
Support, and advocate for our members.
Our members make us who we are and are the heart of the organization. The society was founded on the principle that we are stronger together than as competition. Because of this, we play a key role in representing, advocating for, and supporting our member spaces.
Encourage social and community impact.
Although inherently valuable to the workers themselves, through its process of connection, coworking becomes profoundly valuable to the community. The deeper meaning of coworking, which encourages community, is held highly by the society and strongly encouraged.
If you own coworking space in BC, or would like to, please get in touch! We’re better when we’re together. We get to learn, exchange, and guide eachother through the obstacles of operating a space. Please email us with any questions.
Coworking is a cornerstone in the evolution of how we work. No longer predominantly tied to a 9 to 5 routine, or a specific space in time, much of our job security is gone – but we’ve gained so much freedom! As social creatures with a pre-disposition to create community, it doesn’t take long to discover the boundaries and limitations of a solitary life of working from home, or the transiency of working from cafes and other public places.
Coworking provides an opportunity to be selective about our environment, and our coworkers, in a way that traditional employment doesn’t. It offers the chance to locate our tribe, to choose where we sit, for what hours of which days. Each coworking community is unique, and when it’s done well, it supersedes the bricks and mortar of a space. It gives us a chance to develop and grow in ways that are surprising and fundamental, in both our professional and personal lives.
Take the time to discover what coworking options are available to you. You may just be amazed at what you find.
