Offering space and support to working parents who need flexibility

The Workaround’s exists to provide you with everything you need to do your best work, without the friction of trying to do it all solo. Managing parenthood and a career is next-level challenging. Whether you’re returning to work after leave, stranded during a snow day or growing your seven-figure empire, a spot is ready for you.


Babies aren’t mandatory at The Workaround - show up as you are. Join us as an entrepreneur or remote worker for a large corporation; the coffee tastes the same. We invite you to work around other parents, work nearby your children, and breakthrough some of the isolation (and children-driven distractions) that come from working at home.

Located in Toronto’s vibrant east-end at Danforth Avenue and Woodbine Avenue, we strive to remove some of the barriers that come with working at home or from your local cafe. Besides, who is more productive than parents? The Workaround is coworking, made easy. 

We are located directly beside Woodbine TTC station (accessible), five minutes to the Main St GO Station, and ample parking on Danforth Avenue, Green P and Impark lots nearby.


The Workaround was born when my children were born…

And I quickly figured out that childcare in Toronto is inaccessible and unaffordable. But I wanted to continue to thrive in my career. We need innovative models that support all working parents.

So we created a space where other moms and dads could walk to work. Where they can work around parents and non-parents. And if they need emergency child care for the day, we will support that. If they want to avoid a long commute into the downtown core, we can help get them online quicker.

So here we are. Best of all, The Workaround community itself has become one big self-made family…
