Events in Ottawa and Toronto August 10th Weekend
Hello again everyone! After a rainy week in Ontario, weather reports are calling for a beautiful and sunny weekend, so get out there and enjoy yourself! At SpaceiShare, we get the importance of community, so every week we will be updating you on events in yours.
 

Got an event going on near you? Let me know and I'll be sure to include it. Reach out to us at team@spaceishare.com for any feedback about how we could make this newsletter better! Also, check out our brand-new website at SpaceiShare.com. We are currently looking for space in the Danforth and Woodbine, Esplanade, and Liberty Village areas particularly, but we are happy to accept space anywhere in Canada! 

Thanks!

Cam, SpaceiShare
