Huge Montreal church remade into coworking space, will open its doors for free

A new Montreal coworking space inside of a giant church will offer its offices to the public free of charge for one week next week, December 14-18.

The Co-Creation Lab is housed within Le Salon 1861, which is a planned multi-functional event hall, restaurant and startup hub. It’s all housed within the St. Joseph Church, which is located at 550 rue Richmond, between Griffintown and Little Burgundy. It’s been “reinvented to be a connector of like-minded business leaders, startups, community groups, universities and local residents to be a new business model eco-system, for networking events, trainings, resources and contracts.”

In a newsletter, the space’s management proclaimed that the Co-Creation Lab will gather the community around morning activities, business lunches, co-creation workshops and more.

“Everyday from 9 to 5, you will have the opportunity to come and work in a collaborative atmosphere, seize new business opportunities, meet potential partners, and explore everything that the co-creation lab has to offer,” wrote the new space.

Co-Creation Lab appears to be another in a solid line of new coworking spaces available for entrepreneurs in the city. Just last week La Gare coworking space, at 5333 Casgrain in the Mile End, opened with a large event. It’s run by a foursome of entrepreneurs, including Busbud founder LP Maurice.

There’s also Notman House at 51 Sherbrooke St. O; NEXUS Workspace at 4529 Clark Street; 6Cent1 at 400 Avenue Atlantic #601; Regis Montreal at 1000 Rue de la Gauchetière O; Le Co Lab at 4267 Boul St-Laurent; Espace 360 (two locations in the Plateau); Station C at 5605 avenue de Gaspé, suite 204; La Commune at 440 Place Jacques Cartier; and many more.
