Eco Coworking Space Available

Hintonburg, Ottawa (map)

We’re looking for new office buddies — could you be one?

Together with the Ottawa Renewable Energy Cooperative, we are looking for either several individual, or a small group, of new office buddies to join us at the Sustainable Capacity Centre in the Hintonburg area of Ottawa. Somewhere in the range of 5-10 new faces, who will work out of a newly renovated front room.

Monthly rent starts at $250 for an individual, or $1000 for a group. If you like working in a vibrant, creative space, surrounded by exciting sustainability groups and ventures, this may be the place for you. Includes access to kitchenette, small meeting room, washrooms (one with a shower), a trendy donut shop downstairs, and awesome office buddies.

You don’t need to be a non-profit either – businesses that care about sustainability are more than welcome!
