About Seaway

Building Businesses Together.

Seaway Coworking is on a mission to empower today’s innovative businesses and individuals with the space and resources they need to thrive. Our alternative to the traditional office provides a low-cost workspace solution without missing out on the added support of office administrators, mail services, conference rooms, and more. And because our model provides so much flexibility, our members range from business accelerator programs to self-employed entrepreneurs to students in need of a better study space in downtown Kingston, Ontario.

Coworking Space With Personality.

Our Purpose:

Building people, building people.

Meet The Team.

James Puffer

Vice-President of Coworking Operations

After getting his BFA from Queen’s University where he focused on painting, printmaking, and sculpture, James developed a knack for customer forward service as a barista and entered the world of real estate management in 2015 with Varsity Properties. As VP of Co-working Operations, James leads Seaway’s operations, procedures, and profitability. He believes collaboration, community, conversation, and coffee are essential tenets to a positive and productive workplace. Outside of our co-working spaces, James is almost always dabbling between three passions: cooking, making great coffee, and back-country camping. He recommends all three combined.
