Membership

Join the Membership, Join the Movement

In 2004, the Centre for Social Innovation opened Canada’s first coworking space. Since then, CSI Membership has expanded to offer shared supports for everyone on their social impact journey. Whether you’re looking for a tight-knit community, mentorship, entrepreneurial resources and training, or for a way to support people and planet, we’ve got something for you.

Today, CSI is Canada’s largest social innovation community. Some of our members are new to the social innovation world, while others have decades of entrepreneurial experience under their belt. We’ve got leaders of community-based initiatives, and intrapreneurs within large companies. There are individuals and organizations addressing food justice, racial justice, climate action, barriers to employment, workers’ rights, and more. The one thing that unites us? We all care deeply about making the world better for all.

Bring a friend! For a limited time, CSI Members can bring a guest to work in our member-only lounges. 

CSI Community Membership

All the benefits, minus the workspace for only $36 + HST!

Members are the life blood of the non-profit sector. Being a member of CSI is the most fun you can have while making change.

Good for: People looking for friends, connections, activities, and community. Entrepreneurs who want to drop in every once in a while. Supporters who care about CSI.

CSI Hybrid Workspace Membership

Scalable on demand.

The future of work is flexible. 
If your team likes working in the office a couple days a week, we can put together a package that works for you. Plus, you’ll get some free meeting room time and a 50% discount on additional meeting room bookings when you need a space to ideate and collaborate.

Good for: Small teams who want to work in the office 1-2 days a week.

CSI Coworking Space Membership

More than just free coffee.

When CSI opened, we were the first coworking space in Canada. In the over 15 years since, we’ve been thrilled to watch the world catch up with us. We wanted to change the game, not be the only game in town.

WHAT MAKES CSI DIFFERENT

  • We’re a nonprofit space. Rents and membership fees are reinvested here. 
  • We curate our members. You’ll be surrounded by organizations putting people and planet first.
  • We’ve built a real community. You’ll find real meaning and belonging here.
  • We promote member work daily (you’ll get access to our audience of 75K people).

Simply put, if you are a business or organization that wants to change the world, we’d love to help you make that happen.

Whether you need a private office for your team, or just a reason to get out of your house a few hours a month, we offer coworking, community, education, and acceleration services to people just like you.

Good for: People with stuff! People with people. Keep your files secured, store your books, make a dedicated space home for you and your your team. 

Don’t need all the bells and whistles? Stay connected to our work — for free — via the CSI Network.
