Community Innovation Spaces helping Canadian small businesses

With global economies across the world a experiencing downturn, it's no wonder that confidence among small business owners in Canada is dropping.

“Sliding confidence numbers suggest small business owners in our province are not immune to global trends,” Richard Truscott, Alberta Director for CFIB, told the Calgary Herald. “Thankfully, in spite of the ongoing turmoil, Alberta’s entrepreneurs are still maintaining a relatively positive outlook about the overall business environment.”

The high prices associated with office buildings is one concern for Canadian small business owners. Cheap storage units are available as a way for businesses to avoid the high costs.

Community Innovation Spaces such as makerspaces, hackerspaces and fabrication labs, are one way Canada is encouraging entrepreneurship and small businesses. Individuals are able to spark innovation by offering physical space and equipment that they would otherwise not be able to receive without these spaces. Small businesses are creating jobs and various opportunities on a shoestring budget, the Toronto Star reported.

Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether one needs to store filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business person could use to help improve productivity.
