Mississauga has recently become home to a first-of-it’s-kind public working space.

Spacebar is an open area for people from all over the GTA, inviting them to come, collaborate, and conduct their work in a bright and colourful space with similarly motivated people.

“Spacebar is the first coworking space to open in Mississauga which will cater to Milton, Brampton, the [overall] Halton Region as well as the Meadowvale area,” says Maha Ghaznavi, community marketing manager at Spacebar Coworking. “It’ll be home for many tech startups, small businesses, and other entrepreneurs. Our members enjoy getting work done so close to home without having to forego inspiring interior design, networking opportunities and a professional workspace.”

Spacebar is located on Millcreek Drive in the Meadowvale area, right near the Meadowvale GO Station. It’s a great space to anyone in need of a true work environment but doesn’t want to work at home or in a library.

Going to Spacebar’s motivational environment is reliant on a membership, or a day pass, which will cost you $35. As far as full time memberships go, they swing for $210 per month, day timer memberships are $199 per month, night timer memberships – for evenings and weekends – cost $165 per month, dedicated desker memberships are $450 per month, and private office rentals start at $999 a month.

The latter costs may seem expensive but for a private office rental, you might be attending alongside co-workers, and so the cost could be split. Memberships include meeting room rentals, unlimited coffee and tea, lounge access, discounts from Spacebar’s partners and neighbours, access to exclusive events and seminars. So, as you can tell, the expenses are for much more than a simple quiet space to work in.

So, if you’re a worker in need of an encouraging environment, you can check out Spacebar and meet like-minded individuals.
