Making Room For Self-Storage In Canada
A private corporation based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Sentinel Self-Storage is proud to be the largest 100% Canadian-owned mini storage facility in the country.
The first Sentinel Self-Storage location opened in Edmonton in 1975. The idea was conceived after the owners saw similar structures in the United States and realized there was a need for public storage facilities in Canada.
The evolution of self storage in Alberta is quite interesting. City planners insisted that the first Edmonton facility was to be erected in an industrial area on the outskirts of the city because of its “high risk” potential.
After many years and focused lobbying efforts, planners came to realize that these first generation mini storage facilities (long rows of garages) posed no threat to the community and, in fact, fulfilled a valuable need. They were then allowed in close proximity to residential areas.
