Home to over 800 mining companies, Vancouver is considered to be the mining capital of the world. Not because there’s a whole lot to dig out of the ground in British Columbia—relatively speaking, there’s not—but because the talent, expertise, and specialist knowledge required to be a successful mining firm congregated and snowballed here over many decades. (The tax incentives help too, of course.)

Lately, the city has evolved to include more diverse industries and jobs. Many of these echo Vancouver’s heritage as a mining and manufacturing hub, such as environmental consultants, geologists, and specialist law firms. Others look to the future, like the startups working in biotech, video games, and aerospace. 

The same forces of attraction that turned Vancouver into the world’s mining capital are now luring creative talent from every industry. The only problem is finding room for these companies to grow their business. More than ever, shared offices in Vancouver are providing the space needed for startups, freelancers, and established firms looking for a place to call home.

WeWork has coworking spaces across Vancouver, offering convenience and flexibility without the stress of long-term leases or upfront costs. You can set up a private office or make use of a workspace when you need it with WeWork All Access or WeWork On Demand. Let’s take a look at six of the best coworking spaces in Vancouver.
