Ideal for teams of 3-5 people that work remotely but need to get together once in a while
6 weeks notice
Is a membership where 3-5 people that work for the same company share 25 days/credits of co-working. You can select from one of the open seats and most commonly together in the same area. Desks with monitors are available and you have a choice from working at a desk or the standing bench. This is ideal for remote employees that need to get together occasionally, Agencies, Sales Teams, consultant groups and small companies that need a head office. It is cost-effective and provides a social outlet two to three days a week when you primarily work from home.
The membership hours are extended and allow your team to work weekdays between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm. You are each provided with a code that gives you access to the office. 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.
All amenities are taken care of such as high-speed WiFi, with options for LAN connections, printer/scanner, and basic office supplies. You can also receive packages at the office address and meet with clients.
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.
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 workspace, 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.
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.
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.
They are just two methods of paying for your membership. Casual monthly if straight forward where you purchase a month at a time from date of purchase as needed. There is no commitment and is ideal if you are working in the city for a month or so. Down sides are there is no guarantee each month of having a desk and you do not get the discounted rate as you do with subscriptions.
Subscriptions are billed to your credit card automatically each month on your billing date. Your commitment is to provide notice six weeks or (45 days) in advance. This just gives us time to find someone that will be taking your spot.
There are some additional services that are available to the Hot Desk membership.
* Mailbox service can be added separately to a casual membership standard terms apply.
* Locker rental including locks are available and are assigned based on availability.
* Rental services such as boardrooms, space rental, projector & screen, furniture rental etc.

To say that I'm impressed with Eric and My Byward Office would be a gross understatement. The facilities are the funkiest, most versatile and most technologically advanced I've seen, and I've checked out quite a few!
I have worked out of My Byward Office since they opened, and I absolutely love it. MBO is a spot you can feel good about taking clients, and its location (in the centre of the Market) is unbeatable.
If you're working at My ByWard Office, you'll be joining one of the smartest people in Ottawa. The founder (Eric) is genuinely interested in your success as a person and you'd be receiving so much more than just space. You'll have access to really valuable mentorship. He's helped me in more ways than I can count, 100% recommend.
Great location, great atmosphere and great service, what else do you need? Complimentary coffee and fruits, they've got it! Eric will make you feel welcomed and he might even have some great business insight if you ask him.
Super productive and creative space! Also appreciated Eric's coaching for entrepreneurs - very useful. Thanks!
An amazing place with great facilities for entrepreneurs to take their business to the next level! We enjoyed being there and chatting with Eric. He is a very knowledgeable and helpful person. Thanks Eric for your advice!
