Staying Local This Long Weekend?


The Victoria Day Weekend or “May24” is traditionally the time that Canadians like to whoop it up in grand Canuck fashion. But if you’re getting a little older and a weekend camping trip isn’t quite for you(also read: I just can’t drink that many beers at once anymore and I don’t like sleeping outside), there are a lot of fantastic things happening close to home. Here’s what’s happening around Toronto this weekend.


For a complete list of events in the city this weekend

Stay safe and have fun this long weekend, everyone!  And have a drink on the patio for us!



Elle loves to learn!

We are proud to be members of the Canadian Self Storage Association and we will again be Vancouver bound in June for the 11TH ANNUAL C.S.S.A. WESTERN CANADIAN CONFERENCE, TRADESHOW, SELF STORAGE FACILITY TOURS AND THE 2017 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING!

On June 8th, the event opens with the C.S.S.A. Self Storage Trade show where we will have the opportunity to meet with many of the amazing suppliers in our industry for everything from insurance, to locks, moving supplies, buildings and components, all under one roof.

There will be guest speakers to discuss topics such as Facility Valuations and the movement of self storage in western Canada;  marketing your self storage business in 2017 with teaching techniques and strategies for digital marketing, social media and online reputation management skills; and Best Practices for Sale and Disposal of Delinquent Accounts.

Also back by popular demand is the TOWN HALL DISCUSSION covering everything from raising rent rates, collections, delinquencies, everyday customer experiences.

And of course the exciting Panel of Professionals where we have the chance to ask questions with professionals on things like repairs, security, gates, fencing product and more.

At Elle Management, we don’t just want to be GREAT at what we do, we want to keep getting better. Events like this help us keep on top of the newest and best practices in the industry and allow us to share our own expertise and advice to our colleagues and friends.

You don’t get to be the BEST in your industry without keeping up to date on the latest and the greatest ideas and innovations in self storage!

This week, Elle is attending the ISS World Expo in Las Vegas, participating in extensive education and training courses on critical topics to your business including building, financing, investing, marketing and the latest in tech features.
