About Us

Going beyond the boundaries of a traditional office

Cowork – Collaborate – Create

Coastline Colab is a non-for-profit coworking space created for and by the community it serves. Based in Powell River, we seek to lower the barriers for aspiring entrepreneurs, contractors, change makers, and remote workers by offering a collaborative working space, business incubation programming, network opportunities, and other entrepreneurial support services and training.

We believe that work is about people and ideas and that the spaces we work in need to be in support of both. Our coworking space offers a professional yet relaxed office environment that reflect a feel and style grounded in the beauty of our surrounding coast and forest – openness, high ceilings, natural wood, light, good ventilation and comfort.

The space offers access to individual working spaces with high-end office chairs, access to a shared meeting room, event and programming space, kitchenette, and a shared sitting area.

Coastline Colab is also the home to the Powell River Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Development program – a cluster of entrepreneurial support services and training opportunities with a focus on ideation, business planning and incubation services for members and the public alike.
