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 ...

You need a Toronto seminar training room for 50 people? No Problem

Conference or Toronto seminar training room rentals are not always the first thing people think of when they hear the words office business centre. Say office business centre and most people just think of a cost-efficient office space facility with shared amenities and a-la-carte services. While that is a true representation, sometimes they offer more.Telsec not only offers office space Toronto and all the usual amenities and features at its Toronto business centre, they also have two large seminar training rooms that can accommodate up to 50 people in each room. The Toronto seminar training rooms can be configured in various ways depending on the needs of the conference or training session. The room can be set up with theatre-style seating, classroom-style (desks facing forward), horsesho...

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. He was shocked that there was such a thing as a large meeting rooms at a small price or even free. It was odd that this gen...

Why a Toronto Shared Office?

We are often asked why someone in a company would want a Toronto shared office. There are many reasons for a Toronto shared office. Every company has its own reasons for needing a particular type of office space Toronto  – not every company or entrepreneur needs a full-time office. Companies who do not need a full time office are often attracted to the low price of a Toronto shared office space at only $225 per month. They can use their shared office space when ever they like without even having to check in when they want to use it. The solution of shared office Toronto is a great fit for those who need more than a virtual office Toronto and less than a Toronto private office. Most often they want the benefits of being a Toronto office space for lease client, without the cost of a private ...

Working Remotely During The Olympic Games

The Olympic Games may be 3,000 km away, but they still have an impact on Toronto traffic. London just opened their lanes designated for Olympic traffic, but Toronto still has underused HOV lanes. These are lanes that are kept for buses, taxis and other high-occupancy vehicles with more than two people. These far-left lanes are very popular with those who carpool. Yes, London opened the dedicated lanes for Olympic official traffic to regular traffic during special times. That is mainly due to the fact that organizers found that many Olympic officials and athletes prefer to take public transit, especially the underground. Even Olympic President Jacques Rogge, who was also the first IOC  president to stay in the Athletes Village back in 2002, has traveled to and from Olympic events via the Lo...

Telsec office space Toronto watches for another Olympic bid

Back in June of 2012, Toronto city councillors requested a report on pursuing the 2024 Summer Games. Some Toronto city councillors see the infrastructure benefits, while others have said that the international amateur sporting event could come with a massive financial burden on the city and the private sector. But Telsec office space Toronto watches for another Olympic bid because it would make a bid to be the Toronto office space that hosts the temporary office space for not only the game organizers, but the committee behind the bid. It cannot be forgotten that Toronto has twice failed in its previous bids to host the Olympic Summer Games: Toronto’s first bid was lost to Atlanta when it tried to host the 1996 Olympics, and again when it lost the bid to Beijing for the games in 2008. Telse...

Let the Games Begin-London 2012 Olympics Games

In just a few short hours, the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games in London will begin. Meanwhile in Toronto at Telsec’s Toronto office for rent, it seems that the games have already began. It started off as a typical Friday, people were chatting about the news and stuff in the kitchen while waiting to get their always complimentary coffee or tea. Then someone asked who was watching the opening ceremonies at the office. The kitchen went a little quiet, until someone volunteered to talk first and say that they would be leaving their office space Toronto early and watching the opening of the games from home. Their statements were quickly followed by several other people stating the same. A few hours later as I stopped by the reception desk to pick up a courier package, the re...

Some good financial news for Toronto office space tenants – and all consumers

Tenants in our office space Toronto location here at Telsec are in for some good news. The federal government is moving forward August 1 with new measures to help Canadian consumers. Some of these new measures include: • A shorter cheque-holding period • A ban on unsolicited credit card cheques • A new mortgage code of conduct Every chance I get, I’m telling my friends and tenants at my Toronto office space that as of Wednesday, August 1, the maximum cheque-holding period will be FOUR business days for cheques not exceeding $1,500. Also, immediate access to the first $100 deposited by cheque in person at a branch, and on the next business day for cheques deposited by any other means such as ATM’s, must be available. The new rules will apply to cheques drawn on a financial institution locat...

Shopping for an Office for Rent Toronto on the Internet

A few days ago, I posted about using a broker to find office space for rent Toronto. A number of people asked me how they knew if the site they were on was a broker site or if they were shopping for an office for rent Toronto on the Internet site for the actual office business centre. The simple (but not the whole) answer is that broker sites tend to list multiple office for rent Toronto that are not branded under the same name. A broker site will probably not have individual phone numbers for the different office for rent Toronto locations. The true test is if the address in the contact information for the website is not in Toronto or is not listed, then most probably the site is for an office space broker in another city or country. The reason for writing this particular blog about shopp...

Do business owners ever really take vacations from their Toronto office space?

I was going through my email the other day and found an email from one of my clients who had previously told me that they would be on vacation this week. I even recalled that they were going out of the country. I was a little shocked to get the email with a list of revisions that they wanted me to work on. It got me to wondering, do business owners ever really take vacations from their Toronto office space? In this case the answer is obviously no. Today, with all the available technology and available high speed internet on almost every corner of the globe, it is quite easy to stay in touch with your Toronto office space. A growing number of people are installing wifi Internet at their cottages, just so they can sit on the deck or dock to use their laptop to stay in touch with their deskto...
