The national unemployment rate in Canada was 7.2 percent in the month of March, though some cities had it better than others, reports The Canadian Press.
While unemployment continues to be high in many major cities – 9.2 percent in Montreal, for example, smaller areas are beginning to recover. Regina dropped down from 4.4 to 3.9 percent, while Halifax and Victoria also posted good numbers. The area of Alberta seems to be doing well, with both Calgary and Edmonton offering above-average job prospects.
Those looking for a job may want to consider moving to an area where positions are more plentiful. An affordable way to do this is to rent a small apartment in a new city while looking for work. Even if a job-seeker can't fit all of their items in this new home, they can get additional space through self storage options. This is a great way to hold onto your stuff and pay less rent in a smaller place while looking for a new career. There are many affordable self storage solutions in Toronto and other major Canadian cities.
Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
