Coworking Spaces in Auckland, New Zealand and Toronto, Canada
We have provided a list of nine of the top operators in the coworking space in Toronto, Canada in the attached spreadsheet. The list includes Regus, Spaces, WeWork, Workhaus, IQ Office Suites, Centre for Social Innovations (CSI), Workplace One, Intelligent Office, and The Professional Centre. For each operator, we have provided the number of locations it has in Toronto; an estimation of the total or average size of the locations in the city; a highlight of the membership plans and their pricing; a general view of the features and amenities that members enjoy; details on sample members at the coworking space; and a comment on whether the company holds regular (networking) events.
In order to decide on the list of the chosen nine brands, we looked at various reports and articles. From industry reports, among the top players in the Canadian coworking space include Regus (IWG), WeWork, Spaces (IWG), IQ Office Suites, Communitech, Workplace One, Centre for Social Innovations (CSI), Workhaus, 312 Main Street, and Intelligent Office. Specifically, the main coworking operators in Toronto, based on their proportion of the 2.4 million square feet coworking inventory in the city are: Regus and Spaces: 49; WeWork: 28%; Workhaus: 7%; IQ Suites: 6%; Centre for Social Innovations: 5%; and Others: 5%. We used the previously mentioned country report to determine which of the operators have operations in Toronto to choose the last three providers. Although Regus and Spaces are part of the International Workplace Group (IWG), they operate, and reported on, as separate brands. As such, we presented them as separate entities in our compilation, though some of the available information was not differentiated as in the case of sizing their share of Toronto's coworking inventory.
