Your Pay-As-You-Go Co-Working solution when you need an alternative from the coffee shop when working downtown. The days are valid for a year or 6 months from the date of purchase. Benefits of the Passport is you can use these in half (1/2) day increments. Ideal when you are traveling, need to be close to the Ottawa Courthouse, Parliment & US Embassy.
What is a Day Pass and how does it work?

Select from one of the open seats and we guaranteed there is always one when you arrive. Desks with monitors are available and you have a choice from working at a desk or the standing bench. This is ideal for the Freelancers, remote employee, consultants and solo entrepreneurs that need an all-inclusive shared workspace outside of the home. It is cost-effective and provides a social outlet two to three days a week when you primarily work from home.

Basic features of the Day Pass Casual User?

Purchase a day of co-working at a time, and you are provided with a code that gives you access to the office between Mon – Fri 8:00 am – 6:00 pm. We provide all the amenities; coffee, tea, kitchenette with dishes, microwave. You won’t have to worry about repairing things in the office, cleaning or doing dishes.

What services and amenities are included?

All amenities are taken care of such as high-speed WiFi, printer/scanner, and basic office supplies. There is a phone booth for calls and if you have a client meeting you can rent the boardroom.

Can I take calls at my desk?

Yes, of course, you can take calls in the office, but if you are on a long call we have a phone booth or you can reserve the meeting room. But it is a normal part of any office to take short calls and speak with colleagues and a shared office is no different. We don’t want our members to feel awkward, we are not a library.

What is it like working in a shared office?

A big part of working in a shared office space is the office etiquette. We all try to be respectful of others and maintain a tidy uncluttered work-space, this does not mean sparse. If you are easily distracted by background work chatter we recommend bringing headphones. Most importantly let’s be considerate of others and speak to and treat everyone with respect.

What about community and safety?

The office has been built in such a way that it fosters community, and as a result, we all look out for each other. The most important rule of the office is simple. “If you are the last one in a meeting room or the co-working office, please close the doors behind you.” Everyone that is entitled to access the space has their own code, no one gets locked out. This way we keep the offices and our personal items secure.

How do I secure my valuable items?

If you need to secure something let us know so we can help in a pinch. Or rent a locker if you have valuables you don’t want to move back and forth. Important: we do not recommend leaving valuable items out in the office as we do not accept responsibility for lost items.

What's the difference between Day Pass and Passport?

The Day Pass is a day of co-working and is valid for one month of purchase and you can buy more as needed.  There is no commitment and is ideal if you are working downtown for a day or two.

Passport is a block of 10-day passes and is discounted, the days are valid for a full year from the date of purchase. There are two benefits you can use these in half (1/2) day increments if needed and you always know where you can find a desk.

  • Mailbox service can be added separately to a casual membership standard terms apply.
  • Locker rental including lock is available, and are assigned based on availability.

  • A lot of attention has been paid to the overall design of the space; it's bright, airy, and the furniture (seats, desks) were purchased with the knowledge that people actually need to be comfortable when working. Eric, the Manager/Owner, is very welcoming, extremely attentive to everyone's needs, and goes out of his way to ensure that MBO members are beyond satisfied. I certainly am.
