In 2020, more than 3 million Canadians have lost their jobs, with 5 million jobs affected overall. This has left many people in our community keen to increase their confidence in their careers, and has left employers looking for the best talent available.

Many of the people that have been part of our coworking community over the past 5 years are entrepreneurs, freelancers, consultants, remote workers, and students either in the tech industry or your business or work relies on technology to operate.

We hear from many that they are keen to expand their knowledge in order to grow their business or career, or they are looking for the right talent to help them achieve their goals. Some may be looking for a career change since there have been layoffs and job loss during these uncertain times.
