Amsterdam-based Spaces will open coworking location in Montreal

Amsterdam-based coworking company Spaces is opening its second Canadian location in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood on May 22.

The company, which has 92 locations in 25 countries across the world, aims to support entrepreneurs by giving them creative workspaces to develop their projects.

Spaces cited a report by Business Insider, which ranks Montreal as one of the most high-tech cities in the world, as one of the reasons to bring its collaborative workspaces to the city. The company said it hopes to become the biggest creative workspace provider in the Greater Montreal Area with plans to open opening five coworking locations in the region over the next two years.

“There’s a workplace revolution happening around the world with many people turning to inspiring and collaborative workspaces over traditional office space”, said Martijn Roordink, co-founder of Spaces. “Mile End is a prime location for our Canadian growth as we focus on growing in the best, trendiest and most innovative locations around the world.”

Spaces opened its first Canadian location in Toronto in November 2017.
