Our event spaces bring together the social mission sector. They’re functional, beautiful, and can accommodate large groups or intimate gatherings. CSI spaces have hosted everything from book signings to AGMS to weddings!

In accordance with the City of Toronto’s additional health measures during the pandemic, we are not offering event space bookings at this time.

Event Spaces

Climate Ventures

Ground Floor
  • Capacity: 50
  • Starting at: $67/hr

Climate Ventures is a medium sized space with lounge, coworking area, screen and projector, a kitchenette, and 2 private washrooms. Climate Ventures’ space was designed by Peggy Sue Deaven of Peggy Sue Collection, an award-winning, Climate Ventures-accelerated venture, for functionality, connection, and inspiration. Almost everything in the space has a sustainability story, such as being made locally by a member (green wall by Ripple Farms, tables by Just Be Woodsy) or out of low-carbon materials. Even the light fixtures are in the shape of an HFC molecule made in Cabbagetown.

Accessibility, Cancellations & Frequently Asked Questions

The story of the Centre for Social Innovation begins way back in 2003, when a group of visionary social entrepreneurs decided that something wasn’t working in the social mission sector.

ACCESSIBILITY

We are committed to ensuring all members and their guests are able to use our services. Information on our buildings’ accessibility is available here.

Cancellations

We require 10 business days to cancel your booking without any financial consequence, otherwise the full amount of the booking will be charged.

We require a three-hour minimum rental for event spaces.

FAQ

These are some of our more frequently asked frequently asked questions. For the full FAQ, please click here.

Meeting Rooms are smaller enclosed rooms typically used for board meetings, team meetings, and smaller activities.

Event Spaces are larger open-concept spaces, or a combination of open-concept space with meeting rooms.

The time of your booking with us should include time that you need to set up and clean up your event. This will be coordinated between your team and ours.

Events may not run past 11pm, though your team can stay on site past that time to clean up. Most Event Spaces also function as Member Lounges during business hours, and are unavailable until 5pm on weekdays – the exception is the Garage at CSI Annex and the Atrium at 192 Spadina.
