Hello, and thank you for visiting!

According to the Canada Self Storage Association, the laws regarding storage operators' legal authority can be a bit blurry. "The continued lack of industry specific lien legislation" makes the task of bringing a non-paying customer's belongings to auction, or even disposing of them, a confusing and difficult task.

According to the CSSA, personal property law is "a very complex and broad form of law", so the specific legal action your storage company will (or is legally permitted to) take may depend greatly on your situation.
