Merry Christmas Happy Hanukkah and Seasons Greetings

I wanted to write a blog giving warm wishes to Telsec’s Toronto office space for rent clients and the readers of this blog for this festive season. I wanted to be as inclusive as I could. The most commonly celebrated holidays at this time of year are Christmas and Hanukkah, so Merry Christmas to those who observe Christian holidays and Happy Hanukkah to those Jewish friends who celebrate the eight-day festival commemorating the miracle of the oil after the desecration of the Temple by Antiochus IV Epiphanes and his defeat in 165 BC. As I did some research, I also found that this time of the year is also a time for other celebrations. While some of them are cultural and some that are seasonal, others are celebrations of parody. Yule, Yalda, Yulefest, Mōdraniht and Saturnalia are some of the...

Opening a branch office in Toronto can be easy and inexpensive

Having a branch office in a city that you are just begging to service or sell into can often sound like an expensive proposition, but it does not have to be. Opening a branch office in Toronto can be easy and inexpensive when you select the right office space or virtual office space location.

Choose an Office Space Toronto with Wired and Wireless Internet Connections

When deciding on office space, many people forget to consider what infrastructure they will need. Two of the most important infrastructure needs are telecommunications and Internet access. This includes traditional office space that is rented or leased as empty space. The first decision you will need to make about setting up a network in empty office space Toronto is whether you would like it to be wired or wireless. Wired (or Ethernet) networks are extremely reliable, economical, easy to install, and secure. If you have a lot of components you would like to access the Internet with, however, you might opt for a wireless network, which allows you to have broadband access from a distance. Wireless networks have become very easy to install as well, thanks to Wi-Fi. You also eliminate the nee...

Demand for downtown Toronto office space rising

With continuing residential condominium development, especially in Toronto’s downtown core (particularly in the area around Yonge and Bay Streets near Lake Shore Blvd.), Toronto office space and office space for lease Toronto is becoming less and less available. Despite the current flat economy, new condo units are being built and recently finished units are filling quickly. According to a recent Toronto Star article, more than 70,000 new units have been built in or close to the downtown core in the last 5 years. Another 17,000 are now under construction or are expected to be available by the end of 2011. This is attracting young professionals from the suburbs who have now decided to reside in downtown Toronto. Other reasons for this influx include re-development of the waterfront, easy ac...

Lest We Forget on this Remembrance Day

Lest we Forget! I did not forget, but I did lose track of time this morning. As the roommate charged out the door with his trumpet in hand, I was quickly reminded of the time. I followed him out and stood at attention, while he stood on the front lawn to play the last post. We paused for a minute for contemplation and then he played Reveille. Whether you went to a service or not, I hope you took time from your busy day to remember those who have fallen. The men and women who gave their lives in the defense of our freedom, deserve at least that one minute of your time.
