Now Hiring: Join One of Canada's Fastest-Growing Employers & Industries

Self-storage is one of the fastest growing industries in Ontario and it has a wealth of career growth opportunities for students and recent graduates who want to enter this evolving field. In 2023, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) found that there was 37.3 million square feet of self-storage in Ontario, which grew by 9% in the last three years with 4.2 million square feet added. Some of the key reasons that contributed to the growth of the self-storage industry in the last several years appear to be people downsizing, clearing space to allow for more work-from-home options, and smaller living spaces in urban centers.

Another upside, is that the self-storage industry offers stable career growth opportunities as it is one of the few industries that is unaffected by economic downturn and recession. There is a common misconception that the types of career opportunities available in the self-storage industry are limited to general labour jobs- this could not be further from the truth. Self-storage is a multi-faceted industry that features job opportunities from a wide array of different disciplines.

Outcome Campus Connect is now bridging opportunities in this expanding industry right to you from our employer partners at Storwell, one of Canada's fastest growing businesses and an employer who is now diversifying its offerings to include a hotel - yep, you read that right, a hotel!

Here' s some more information on this promising company and the roles it is hiring for on our platform now.
