Fernie Chamber’s Downtown Community Coworking Space

The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is extremely excited to provide an update on the opening of our brand-new community coworking space in downtown Fernie. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, the Fernie Chamber has continued to advance this project with interior renovations of the space now well underway at 342 2nd Avenue.

The Fernie Chamber is announcing the name and branding of the new coworking space which will be known as 2nd Edition Coworking. The name of the coworking space is a tip of the hat to its convenient downtown location on Fernie’s 2nd Avenue. It also acknowledges the legacy of the building which has been home to the Fernie Free Press newspaper for generations. As such, it will be the second version of this historic building and a second place for local and visiting entrepreneurs and professionals to work. As previously announced, the Fernie Free Press will stay on in the newly renovated coworking space as a founding member and anchor tenant of the new coworking space.

2nd Edition Coworking has launched an email database and social media accounts so that interested people can stay up to date on the progress of the space. You can subscribe to the new coworking space e-newsletters by visiting www.coworkingfernie.com and be the first to know about coworking options, memberships and pricing as those details become available. The Fernie Chamber will also be telling the story of the journey of opening the coworking space, by sharing photos of the renovation and sneak previews of the completed space.

We appreciate the support and encouragement of the local Fernie business community as we work to open a professional space that will drive entrepreneurship and foster collaboration and innovation for years to come. Please help us spread the word!

We also would like to acknowledge the generous contribution from the Province of British Columbia which has made this project possible.

The Fernie Chamber is anticipating doors opening in late fall of 2020.
More details to be announced soon.
