SO­CIAL NET­WORK

ELLE (Canada) - - Career -

With al­most three mil­lion self-em­ployed Cana­di­ans, cowork­ing of­fices have be­come the new cof­fee shop. Here are five next-level spa­ces.

For peo­ple who want to change the world...

Hive, lo­cated in down­town Van­cou­ver, is goodSa­mar­i­tan ground zero. It boasts 200 mem­bers, from non-profit heads to lead­ers of or­ganic ur­ban farm co-ops.

For Canada’s next top chefs...

Step 1. Rent out space in Win­nipeg’s Kitchen Sync, a li­censed com­mer­cial kitchen. Step 2. Fi­nally re­al­ize your dream of turn­ing your nana’s se­cret choco­lat­e­chip-cookie recipe into the next Milk Bar Crack Pie.

For ex­hausted par­ents...

If the thought of lis­ten­ing to your tod­dler watch Frozen for the 2,000th time while you try to read sales spread­sheets evokes an im­me­di­ate ugly cry, try the Bridge in Cal­gary. It’s one of a grow­ing num­ber of co-work­ing spa­ces that in­cor­po­rate day­care.

For Lore­lai Gil­more types...

Does your cre­ative flow cor­re­late with caf­feine con­sumed? Hit up Crew Col­lec­tive & Café, housed in a re­stored bank in Mon­treal’s Old Port. You can pre-or­der sus­te­nance (from es­presso to a pis­ta­chio blondie with co­conut ) and have it de­liv­ered to your seat.

For the next Frank Gehry...

Fold, lo­cated in Toronto’s Junc­tion area, wel­comes peo­ple from all cre­ative fields but caters to ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior de­sign­ers. It has a de­sign re­source li­brary and hosts reg­u­lar in­dus­try sym­posia.
