The CSI Lounge Pass
Do you want a space to work a few days a month, but aren’t ready to join a co-working space? Are you bouncing around the globe, and find yourself looking for a place to get stuff done when you’re in Toronto? Would you like to help support the work of startups and advocates looking to solve the world’s problems?
Spend the day at CSI!
From ancient beams, come radical dreams. Our not-for-profit community has plenty of both. So pack up your notebook or your Macbook and get inspired while working out of the ground-floor lounge at CSI Annex. We’re testing out this new product, which means we’re offering it at a discount! Stop by and pick up a single-day Lounge Pass in-person. No membership required!

Unlike your local cafe, the coffee and tea are free and unlimited at CSI with the purchase of a Lounge Pass! Also, the space is wheelchair accessible, the electrical outlets are plentiful, and your dog is welcome to join you! You’ll also be surrounded by other change-makers, and you could just find your next collaborator or customer.

Please note: as we test out this new product, it will only be available at our CSI Annex location (720 Bathurst St), and can only be purchased in person via credit or debit (no cash). To get a Lounge Pass, come visit the CSI Annex Welcome Desk (Ground Floor). We can’t wait to see you!
The CSI Annex Location
We bought and renovated CSI Annex in 2010 with $2M coming from the sale of Community Bonds. The building, built before 1920, boasts five floors totalling 36,000 square feet of social innovation potential bursting with entrepreneurial energy. The first floor is a community gathering place with event spaces and plenty of social space to chill-out and connect. The second and third floors have a vibrant mix of private offices, private desks and shared desks, hosting an incredible diversity of members in a beautiful and open collaborative environment. Floors four and five have larger private offices and themed incubation spaces focussed on improving our city and bringing new projects to life. Learn more about CSI Annex here.
