Canada a New “Curiosity” for American Businesses seeking Toronto virtual office space

You may not be able to get an office space on Mars, but you can have a Toronto cloud office. Late Sunday night, early Monday morning (depending on your timezone) NASA’s Mars science rover “Curiosity” made its descent through pink Martian skies late on Sunday to clinch an historic landing. Mission controllers burst into applause and cheers as they received signals confirming that the SUV-sized space vehicle had survived a perilous seven-minute descent that NASA has called the most elaborate and difficult task in the history of robotic spaceflight. While Telsec’s Toronto cloud office and office space Toronto staff were enjoying the Toronto civic holiday, voice mail still came in inquiring about cloud office space. It seems that Americans who had watched the “Curiosity...

Greater Toronto Area is Fast Becoming Canada’s Most Expensive Place to Operate Corporate Headquarters

According to a U.S. consulting firm that did a study to find what cities have the highest office space rates, they that the Toronto and GTA (Greater Toronto Area) is fast becoming Canada’s most expensive place to operate corporate headquarters.

Many years ago, large North American companies had their Canadian corporate headquarters in Montreal office space, but moved them to Toronto. Now, Toronto office space for lease is getting out of reach in terms of cost and availability for new firms looking for corporate headquarters. Large co...

Letter From Camp sent to Office Space Toronto

Today on the heels of a long weekend, one of our office for rent Toronto clients received a special letter from his son who was at summer camp in Northern Ontario. What made this letter special was two-fold. First the letter was sent to the father at his business address rather than their home, the second was that the address was not exactly written properly and the post office was still able to deliver it. The address of his father’s business is Mike Jones & Associates (name changed to protect privacy), 1 Yonge Street, suite 1801, Toronto, Ontario, M5E 1W7. The son’s letter was addressed as “Daddy 18 floor 1 Young Street, Toronto Canada”. Yep, even without the postal code or proper spelling of Yonge Street, the post office was able to deliver the letter. There ...

Large Meeting Rooms at a Small Price or Even Free

Recently an employee of a new office space Toronto tenant went to the receptionist with credit card in hand and wanted to rent one of the large meeting rooms for 3 hours. The receptionist was confused and did not know why the man had put his credit card on the reception desk. The man explained that he wanted to put the expense on his company credit card. The receptionist (who had not seen this gentleman before) started to take his information. When she asked for the company address he told her his suite number, which made her stop writing. She explained to the gentleman that as an Telsec Toronto offices space for rent client, there was no charge for the meeting rooms.
