All Canadian Self-Storage offers its clients the convenience of self-storage, giving outgrown clothes, holiday decorations, and top-secret dossiers on alien landings a new home away from home. Storage-unit sizes vary by location—the Toronto Centre location, for instance, boasts units up to 800 square feet, and Brantford's options top out at 600 square feet. Prices per unit also vary by location, but the average cost of a 5’ by 10’ unit is around $103 (unheated) or $110 (heated) per month. And though the Toronto Centre location is the only All Canadian Self-Storage facility to offer drive-thru services allowing customers to navigate their vehicles directly into the building, all the All Canadian Self-Storage facilities boast seven-day access, full security features, and a gremlin-free environment.
In 1993, Bonnie left her job in banking for barking, starting up Pet Styles. A few years later she was joined by Alisha, who started off bathing the dogs before becoming a groomer. Bonnie and Alisha groom dogs as small as chihuahuas and toy poodles and as large as huskies and newfoundlands, styling them within their breed standards to make them dog-show ready, or to their owners' preferences to make them look like cats. The two groomers keep a careful eye on pets, pausing grooming sessions if it seems like the dog is becoming distressed.

ThePhotoBooth.ca enlivens events from corporate parties to weddings and bar mitzvahs with photo booths that utilize 10-megapixel cameras to capture high-resolution shots. Groups of up to eight people can complete three- or four-picture sessions in about a minute, and shots eject about 30 seconds later on high-quality photo paper in a choice of black-and-white, sepia, or colour. Rentals include unlimited photo sessions, allowing guests to try out a variety of backgrounds, real-time slideshows, and green screens that put subjects on their choice of Jupiter's moons. An on-site attendant—who also performs setup and tear-down—helps partygoers maximize the booth experience and explains how guests can view and share photos via logging on to a private web gallery, accessible for one year.
Employing professional broadcast equipment, the memory restorers at Toronto Home Movies weave threadbare tapes into a sleek tapestry of digital imagery. Adept analog whisperers gently coax VHS, HI8, 8MM, Digital 8, and MiniDV ($12.50 per hour) or film ($25 for 100 ft. of 16mm film) into selflessly giving their content to the 21st century. Audio/visual virtuosos ready home videos, old movies, and public service announcement collections for transfer with a thorough cleaning and conditioning. After technicians edit out reel markers and empty frames, computers step in to scrutinize and enhance every frame for optimal colour and clarity. Customers leave with a high-quality DVD that, like every sequel ever made, is a vast improvement on the original.
