Without our amazing community members, we’re just another pretty space. While it is great to work in a bright, beautifully designed space that inspires you, it is our member community that will bring the greatest value to your small business. Each member brings with them a unique set of skills, experience and perspective to share. As our community grows, so will the richness of the experience of “working Lokaal”.
ENGAGE. SHARE. PARTICIPATE.

Ilan’s licensed apparel business will knock your licnesed socks off. Quite possibly in the running for Mayor of Lokaal, Ilan is one of the friendliest and welcoming people we know. When not brokering deals he can be found walking the neighbourhoods with his cute dog Stella.

Kumary Chiquinquira Ponnambalam
Kumary (Kuma Qi) runs a guide company, Guilty Pleasure Guides, and is working on taking over the tropical half of Toronto, using her "green", "walkable" trade routes. Her humble tech start-up, Tropical Northern Inc., deals coffee, teas, and fairtrade, and trades cultural ideas with policy on the "AI" side. She "takes-over" the upper westside of Toronto with her villainous grins.
In the hopes that this “Social Media Thing” would catch on, Daniel started to help companies track their brand against their industry in real-time, across every major social network (tracking limited to planet Earth). So far so(cial) good!
