We feel that as a Canadian corporation, it is our responsibility to give back to the world we live in and Tree Canada is the perfect partner to ensure this happens.
Tree Canada is a non-profit organization proudly dedicated to planting and nurturing trees. For over 25 years, they’ve engaged communities, governments, corporations and individuals in the pursuit of a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians.
Since 1992, they’ve planted more than 82 million trees, greened more than 660 schoolyards, helped restore places hit by natural disasters, and brought together urban forestry experts greening cities all across Canada.
Virtual Business Offices will be focusing its efforts on the National Greening Program 2020 Project at the Ontario site in the greater Sudbury area. This project is set out to support the restoration of areas in and around the municipality impacted by historic mining operations.
The program has restored areas for over 40 years and aims to continue planting a wide range of tree species and shrubs to afforest areas or increase species diversity.
With 82% of the population now living in urban areas, it’s important to recognize the many benefits that trees provide.
Trees reduce the effects of climate change, naturally cooling cities
One large tree can provide a day’s oxygen for up to four people.
A mature tree can lift nearly 400 litres of water out of the ground, helping to prevent flooding.
Trees sequester CO2, other gases and particles.
Trees can help our economy
Mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can boost home values.
Shade from trees can help us feel up to 15°C cooler on hot summer days and reduce energy costs by 15% to 25%.
Trees can improve the “shopping experience” and demand price.
Trees help us live longer, healthier lives.
Exposure to trees helps reduce stress, speeds healing and improves mental health.
A 10% increase in tree canopy can lead to a 12% decrease in neighbourhood crime.

Being an entrepreneur is an innate trait that some are born with and some aren’t. It’s a mind set that many with this gift can’t seem to escape. They see the world as a large opportunity and continuously seek ways to seize the moment.
The world has seen its fair share of entrepreneurs who have succeeded and others who have failed miserably. It truly is a high risk, high reward life style.
Companies such as: Microsoft, Apple, Virgin, Tesla & Amazon all began as an idea on a piece of paper, by larger than life personalities that once started out in their parent’s basement. After countless trials and tribulations, these individuals were able to successfully penetrate a market and become king pins of their respective industries.
However, this success certainly didn’t come overnight. It’s a known fact that even these successful would-be billionaires were once on the verge of being homeless, surviving on ramen noodles and living out of the back seats of their vehicles. It was only their entrepreneurial instinct that kept them pushing through these hard times and as luck would have it, their hard work and determination paid off.
Then, you have the other side of the coin.
In the early 2010’s, the world became obsessed with the reality TV concept of seeing entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to investors on shows like Dragon’s Den or Shark Tank.
These shows gave the everyday viewer a chance to see what entrepreneurs were coming up with, prior to their multi million dollar success. Some were successful, while most failed to develop a concept that could wow not only the investors, but the audience who were watching the show. In some cases, the feedback went as far as telling these individuals to “stop putting money into this and walk away while you still can” or “this is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of”.
One thing to be taken from the countless seasons of good ideas and bad ideas is that the mindset of the participants never veered from their end goal of being a successful entrepreneur, regardless of the feedback they received.
Whether you possess this way of thinking or not, it’s important to remember that each person has a place in the world to be successful.
Most importantly, any good entrepreneur needs the proper business solutions to complement their ideas, so they can continue to develop and grow.
At Virtual Business Offices, we have those solutions for you. Whether it be a corporate address, live reception services, access to meeting rooms or a combination of all three, our wide range of virtual office packages are fit for businesses at any stage of their growth.

Over the last decade, the number of employees working remotely has skyrocketed, and continues to increase year-over-year. Roughly 70% of the global workforce works remotely at least one day per week, and reports estimate that 50% of the U.S. workforce will be remote within the next ten years. Despite these numbers and the increased popularity of working from home, remote work is still relatively unchartered territory. There are still mixed opinions on teleworking, and many managers remain hesitant and unsure on how to manage remote teams. As a result, it is imperative for remote employees to work efficiently and professionally off-site. I’ve written some key productivity tips below to help remote employees keep on track and stay in their managers good books.
First things first, you need to look the part. A lot of people have this idea that working from home involves sweatpants and a t-shirt, or just throwing on something quick and comfy. Dressing too casually can make it feel like you’re just relaxing at home or hanging out, resulting in lower productivity. Dressing the part, and wearing what one normally would to work, will help you get into the right mindset and feel prepared for your workday.
Secondly, it’s extremely important to keep a proper schedule and work regular hours when working remotely. Some people get into the habit of starting later, and sleeping in, or working different hours when working from home. To be successful and establish a proper routine, it’s important to work the same hours and the same times each and every day.
Similarly, it’s important to remember to take breaks, just like you would at the office, when working from home. A lot of remote workers tend to stay in one place and try to get all of their work done as quickly as possible to have more free time. Instead of cramming, it’s best to take time out of your schedule to get up and get out of your workspace for a few quick breaks.
When working from home it’s also extremely important to pick the right workspace. Creating a dedicated workspace is essential to separating work from your home life and getting into the right mindset for your daily job. When selecting your workspace its important to choose a bright lit space in order to increase your energy, reduce eye strain and keep you focused.
Finally, working from home doesn’t mean you should isolate yourself or work in a completely isolated setting. It’s important to take the time to go outside, get some fresh air, and connect with others. Many remote workers complain of loneliness or of feeling disconnected from the rest of their team. It’s therefore important for remote workers to reach out and connect to their co-workers, friends and family to counteract this.
Remote working is no longer a fringe practice, it’s a legitimate option and could very well be the new norm in the near future. It is therefore important to prepare for remote opportunities and establish strong habits to succeed.

I’m going to answer a question with a question, so bear with me here: do you work from home, or from a country other than Canada? If so, you probably need a virtual business address. At Virtual Business Offices, a virtual business address means that you use our prestigious Bay Street address, and we collect and forward all of your mail/packages for you.
Your clients need to think that your business is established, and physically present in Canada. Getting mail sent to a P.O. box to be forwarded to another address, whether residential or out-of-country, is hardly the most professional image you can convey. There’s nothing worse than that sinking feeling you get when you see the business card that someone handed you has a P.O. Box address on it. It positively reeks of “amateur hour”, and if your business is primarily from home; well, amateur hour is the last feeling you want your clients to have.
If your business is based in a country other than Canada, then a virtual business address is also necessary, at least until you expand your operations and need an office. It adds legitimacy to your Canadian operations, and allows you to have a much larger presence. Your clients won’t have to deal with the hassle in sending cheques internationally, and you can use your new virtual business address as the ‘home base’ for any Canadian subsidiary that you want to register.
A virtual business address takes most of the headaches out of expanding your business to Canada- and does so for a lot less than renting office space would cost. Similarly, if you’re working from home, you might not need an office to handle your day to day operations- but your clients don’t need to know that.
