Create An Environment Of Harmonious Flexibility
Facilitate A Friction-Free Day

Our organic tea program is provided by Canadian company Lemon Lily Tea.
As Toronto Life states, instead of beer and ping-pong there are healthy snacks and a freezer to store breastmilk. We’ve received national media attention from The Globe and Mail, CBC, The Toronto Star, CTV News Channel and more. A recent five-star review:
“This is the nicest co-working space I've used ... and it's right in the 'hood! From the little things, like sparkling water, munchies and bottomless coffee, to the friendly, welcoming people at the door -- I love it here. It's just the right amount of quiet, and knowing I could have my kids hang out in a pinch is another huge bonus. The meeting room options are also super, especially when you have to get a few team members together.”
