Central Manchester workspace, Canada House, are gifting people one week free

co-working to celebrate their 1st birthday and promote the many benefits of this

exciting work-trend.

Twelve months ago, space creators Kinrise, officially launched the Canada House

co-working offer on the ground floor of their stunning Grade II listed, central Manchester

building. The 19th century ex-textile warehouse was already home to some big business

brands leasing the upper levels, but with values steeped in community and social impact,

opening an affordable, sustainable and flexible co-working space was an obvious step for


Samuel Lawson Johnston, Co-Founder of Kinrise, said: “We knew that having this

amazing building right in the heart of Manchester city centre meant that we had a

fantastic opportunity to help up and coming businesses and social enterprises to network

and collaborate. Whilst the rest of Canada House is occupied by big brands and is home

to a healthy mix of commercial and not-for-profits, we wanted to create a new space to

support small firms and individuals who would massively benefit from this central

location and access to the wider ecosystem of the building.”


Home to an impressive collection of reputable employers, creative, tech and

community-focused organisations, Canada House boasts long-lease offices, a modern

cafe, meeting rooms, event space, a swimming pool and gym. The co-working community

operate out of a beautifully designed, light, bright and modern workspace close to the

Cafe on the ground floor. The space has capacity for 24 co-workers who rent desk space

by the month, enjoy a vibrant events programme, informal business support, reduced

membership to the resident Bannatyne gym and discounted rates at The Clink Cafe .

To celebrate the co-working space turning one, Canada House are inviting people to

come and join them, and work from the space for free for one week in May. Samuel

added ; “Co-working is a fantastic way of working, whether you are self-employed, in a

small team or a remote worker. It is enjoyed by millions of people around the world! But

there are many different types of co-working space, co-working model and membership

type; it can be hard to compare one space or one community with another. We hope that

by gifting people this week in May, we can give them a brand new experience – one that

will light a fire underneath the co-working movement and get more people excited about

the many benefits this approach to working can bring. We are very proud of our space

and our co-working community and look forward to sharing it more widely.”
