Businesses Seek Flexible Workplace Solutions to Keep Overheads low and Seize new Opportunities Emerging in the Region

BURNABY, British Columbia, November 30, 2010 - Regus is responding to the growing demand for flexible workplace
solutions with the opening of a new full service business centre at
Metrotower II located at 4720 Kingsway (
ces) in Burnaby, British Columbia. Positive indicators from the region signal
a renewed optimism for substantial growth in Western Canada.

Burnaby's unique qualities establishes the region for continued economic
and population growth. Sectors such as informational technology,
film/television and professional services along with its close proximity to
downtown Vancouver were among the factors Regus considered when choosing the
location. Client demands for regional offices in the Pacific Rim also
influenced the move. A recent report from the Canadian Federation of
Independent Business finds confidence among British Columbia's small and
mid-sized businesses is up and now the second-highest in the country.

"Burnaby is a premier community in which to live, work and play," said
Wes Lenci, Regus' Regional Vice President. As the pace of business begins to
accelerate, companies of all sizes are looking to adopt flexible strategies
that increase their ability to succeed and allow them to take advantage of
new opportunities. Our solutions were developed in direct response to the
changing work styles of today's mobile business professionals," he added.

The job opportunities in Canada appear to be moving in an upward trend.
Findings from the Regus Business Tracker Survey reveals that 41 percent of
Canadian companies intend to hire additional staff next year.

For Jennie Wild, Account Retention Manager for the telecommunications
firm, Thinktel, location was crucial when selecting her company's new office
location. "We chose Regus because of the great location and responsiveness of
the staff during negotiations."

Regus' Burnaby center is located on the 26th floor of Metrotower II. Its
central location provides direct access to SkyTrain. Regus now operates 30
centres across Canada. All locations offer flexible terms on fully furnished
