Launch is an all-in-one coworking space with locations studded around Winnipeg. It offers a dynamic environment either for working solo or hosting team meetings.

At Launch, you’ll find that the space is divided into several private and semi-private sections. Some conference rooms even have acoustic panels if you need a place to do voice-overs and record podcasts.

They also offer office memberships if you want sole monthly access to a fully furnished room. These can get pretty pricey, but you get a space that’s completely your own― with a sign sporting your name and logo to match.

If you’re a nomadic student just looking for a place with coffee and power outlets, Launch is a bit much. This space is more geared toward remote workers, startup teams, and entrepreneurs who work and meet with clients around the clock.

People keep raving about the free-flow craft beer and we wonder if that ever heightens workflow. If you’re interested in a membership plan, check it out and see for yourself.

Pros

  • Sprawled locations throughout the city
  • Lots of good amenities
  • Wide range of membership plans
  • Open, clean, and modern

Cons

  • Not the best choice for walk-ins, monthly plan only

Launch is not only a space but also a community with companies of all sizes in many sectors that can often share expertise at a high level.”― Andrew MacSkimming

Customer Reviews

Here are some reviews from customers who’ve been more productive since joining TableSpace:

“Hello,

I’ve been working at TableSpace for the last 9 months. During COVID, this place has been my sanctuary to get away from my home, to help me focus and especially to achieve great things while at work. TableSpace has a great calming energy which really allows you to focus and work without interruptions. They have great healthy snacks and Osborne Village is a great neighbourhood to go out and take a walk in when you need a break. I highly recommend this place. I am so much more productive here than I ever would be at home.”― Joel Cloutier

“I have been a member at Tablespace for a few months now, and it has been an absolute LIFESAVER!!! I’m a full time student who doesn’t have a proper workspace at home, and with the lockdown I was having so much trouble getting things done. A friend mentioned Tablespace to me, and I was hooked after my first visit! I don’t think I’ve ever been as productive as I am when I’m at Tablespace!” ― Tekla Cunningham

Creative Manitoba is the favoured hub of artists and creative professionals in the city. The space itself is open to both coworking and events.

Creative Manitoba is an excellent workspace if you and your work group need large spaces like multimedia labs, sacred circles, or big open rooms. And while these spaces are there when you need them, you can also make good use of their individual cubicle-style hot desks.

They also offer hourly and daily rates for boardrooms and meeting spaces. While you don’t get your own locker and designated parking, coworking fees at Creative Manitoba aren’t as expensive as their counterparts elsewhere.

Private desks and offices are also available to rent monthly if you so choose. They come with free usage of the boardroom for a certain number of hours depending on your plan.

While they may not be as modern as other spots on our list, spaces at Creative Manitoba have a warm inviting feel and their multimedia lab has been recently upgraded. Do also note that the hours are shorter than other workspaces of its kind.

All in all, it’s a convenient and affordable option with a unique tie to larger studios spaces.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • Drop-in day pass available
  • Warm ambiance

Cons

  • Shorter hours, closed on Fridays

They also have classrooms on the 4th floor where many of their workshops for artists and arts organizations happen and also a Sacred Circle for their indigenous programming. A great place to go if you want to develop your practical business skills / knowledge and take your creative career to the next level.” ― Aaron Zeghers

4.   888 Business Centre

OPERATING HOURSMonday-Friday: 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
24/7 access for tenants

888 Business Centre is another clean modern space where you can get that to-do list all checked out. It sits comfortably in the city centre, making it easier to do errand runs and reach other locations within the day.

They also have an in-house photography studio so you don’t need to hopscotch elsewhere for a self portrait or those pesky little 1x1s. Your document flow is also supported by a print and copy station well within arm’s reach.

At 888 Business Centre, free parking is right outside the door and there’s plenty of it. As opposed to underground parking, you don’t have to waste a valuable 2 minutes to get from your car to your workstation.

All their plans are monthly, so you don’t really have a walk-in option if you happen to want just an hour or two to get a work block in. You’re better off at a Starbucks for that, anyway.

What’s great is you can customise your plan to fit your preferences with relatively low starting rates. It’s a good way to trim the fat off the services you can live without.

If you do choose to be a regular there, you’ll enjoy 24-hour access to your claimed little corner of town.

Pros

  • Highly customisable plans
  • Affordable
  • In-house photography studio
  • Central location

Cons

  • No walk-in/daily rates

Customer Reviews

Here are some satisfied clients with good things to say about 888 Business Centre:

Another central location on this list is The M Business Center along Portage Avenue. It’s a great space if you like a clean corporate atmosphere.

The M Business Center also works on a monthly-only membership scheme, which shouldn’t be a problem if you’re set on working here often.

We’ll tell you this now to get it out of the way: free parking isn’t on the amenity list for this particular space. To compensate, the nearest parking lot is a 1-minute walk away right across the street.

Similar to 888 Business Centre, they don’t specify the cost of add-on servicesonly their starting monthly rates, which are pretty reasonable. If you wish to configure your plan, you can draft a customised arrangement with them.

While everything else is standard fare, one of the more unique things about The M Business Center is that their boardroom area converts to an event area. After a grueling day’s work, you and your team can easily use the same room to enjoy a bar area and pool table!

Their office chairs are also more comfortable than other coworking spaces, which is a highly underrated feat. People spend hours sitting in front of their desks and a good chair can spell the difference between good posture and a bad back.

Overall, The M Business Centre is a great place to get some tasks done alongside your team or in the company of other dedicated individuals. Just be willing to set aside cash for parking fees.

Pros

  • Custom usage plans
  • Work-hard-play-hard amenities
  • Comfortable chairs
  • Central location

Cons

  • No walk-in/daily rates
  • No free parking

Customer Reviews

Here are some positive takes on the workspace experience at The M Business Centre:

“Love this office! Beautiful space. My clients all find it very impressive. Easy parking, safe and secure, very professional.” ―  Laura M.

“Perfect place to code….it is my office now and forever”― Parth B
