Welcome to The Greenhouse!
A modern, flexible co-working space dedicated to the Vancouver, Canada-area nonprofit community
As you know, iATS Payments exists to serve the nonprofit space – and we’ve been doing so for over 20 years. But we feel there’s always more we can do, particularly in our own backyard.
In Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where iATS Payments is located, commercial lease costs are some of the highest in the country. For many local nonprofits, access to affordable office space can be a challenge. You need cost-effective, flexible options to help you execute on your mission.
With The Greenhouse, we hope to not only mitigate some of those fixed costs, but, as the name implies, offer a welcoming place to help nonprofits just like you grow. It's a co-working space dedicated to the nonprofit community, including registered nonprofits, nonprofit technology companies and consultants. It connects nonprofit organizations with short-term, flexible office space, 100% free of charge, and is a testament to our ongoing commitment to the nonprofit sector.
