Best Spaces To Work Remotely in Vancouver

Izzie Egan

Sometimes I dream of working from a beaten-up sailboat docked in a harbour in Phuket. Or parking my Airstream on the Pacific Coast with the door propped open, so I can feel the warm ocean breeze on my face as I work from my laptop.

But these days our “remote work” at BLANKSLATE is a little more localized. The team works primarily from our homes, client offices, and coffee shops—with 2 days a week out of the fantastic coworking space, Suite Genius.

It’s a very nice balance and one that works quite well for us—so we thought we’d share with you our favourite spots to get some work done! Without further ado, here are 6 of the best spaces to work remotely in Vancouver.

Alisa’s Pick


“CMPNY is more than shared workspace. It’s a place where like-minded people come together in the pursuit of their business dreams.”  

Soon to be open in Burnaby, Alisa was one of the first people to sign up to use the space! It’s close to home AND has a Yoga room, Teleconference Room, kid-friendly offices, mediation room, and a great kitchen!

Waves on Kingsway and Olive Ave

  • Quiet, and the wifi is strong

  • Big space and windows, great for people-watching
