Happy New year! Welcome to our special January Canadian Co-worker eMag.

Welcome to our Special December Holiday Edition of the Canadian CoWorker eMagazine.
Thank you to our community members who joined us for our 4th Anniversary Holiday Party recently! It was memorable and hard to believe we’ve achieved this milestone. We survived and thrived with our members, despite another year of COVID.
As we all adapt and pivot in these most challenging times, we’ve stay true to our mission of redefining the future of work and learning. Hence, it’s never been more exciting and busier time in the history both MindShare Workspace and Learning companies. We are grateful to our partners and clients! Adopting to an agile business mindset is vital in this climate of unknowns. Equally important is having a strong community network of mentors and partners which is what makes the MindShare Workspace such a special place that our members love as a place to connect and call home.
We are optimistic about the future of business in Mississauga and beyond and will execute on our expansion plans in 2022. We’re also excited to be launching an incubator/ accelerator program that will include an expert speaker series and the launch of the Canadian Centre for the Future of Work & Learning.
Welcome to our special November 4th Anniversary edition of the MindShare Canadian CoWorker eMag as we celebrate national Career Month across Canada. Do join us for our first face to face/Virtual anniversary/holiday celebration at the MindShare Workspace, Tuesday, December 7, 5-7 pm. Click here to register.
Our passion to nurture the future of work & learning took to the virtual centre stage as we marked history in creating the first 3D immersive learning environment in North America that replicated our MindShare Coworking space (see image above). The 12th Canadian international EdTech conference last month focused on the notion of future-proofing learning across Canada and beyond.
It’s been wonderful to re-connect with our coworking community, strategic partners, mall shop keepers and customers as we get settled back to business in the ‘new normal.’
The notion of coworking has come of age as we redefine the future of work and learning.
We’ve had university students join us, many new business members who cannot work at home as well as the growing trend of remote hybrid workers (prefer to work away from home several days per week).
I hope you enjoy this Special Fall Issue of the MindShare Canadian CoWorker eMag.
Welcome to our special Re-opening Summer edition of the MindShare Canadian Coworker eMag!
We are thrilled to welcome our existing coworking members and new members back to the MindShare Workspace–Canada’s First Mall located coworking innovation space for small business, consultants and remote workers.
While it’s been an incredibly challenging time to sustain and survive during COVID, our team has taken the opportunity to innovate and create new programs to meet emerging needs of all workers for a growing community of hybrid workers. Given the increased demand, we are in the midst of expansion plans this coming year to Burlington and Richmond Hill.

One Year Ago, Our World Changed Forever:5 Lessons for the Future of Work & Learning
Sitting at a lunch table, I listened with intrigue to a very keen business executive from the U.S share his vision for our co-working business expansion into the north eastern U.S. He had contacted me out of the blue. They owned 16 malls he declared and sought out my company after extensive research as the ideal partner. He did his homework as he pulled out a glossy report on us that included a large coloured layout of a premium mall. He pointed to our full coloured Mindshare logo that was situated next to the Apple store as to the proposed location. As founder of Canada’s first shopping mall located coworking space, this seemed like a great expansion opportunity into the U.S. That same afternoon, we got word from our mall management that our world was about to change forever–immediate full closure.
This was our World War III. The battle against COVID-19 that continues to linger. I remain hopeful and grateful daily despite what still feels like a bad dream, that will go away sooner than later with the vaccine coming. I always felt grateful for how safe Canada felt, having heard war stories from my immigrant parents growing up. The unknowns resulted in a sense of panic at times early on during the pandemic as we tried to make sense of it at all.
