Apartment Evacuees: 30 Days Free Storage Offered in Winnipeg

May 11, 2024

U-Haul® Company of Central Canada is offering 30 days of free self-storage to the 250-plus tenants being forced to evacuate their apartments at 2440 Portage in Winnipeg.

The City of Winnipeg has issued an evacuation of the Portage Avenue apartment block known as Birchwood Terrace over concerns of a potential building collapse. The safety order has resulted in hundreds of residents with moving trucks full of personal belongings with nowhere to go.

Ryan Pearson, U-Haul Company of Central Canada president, said Friday that his team at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Notre Dame can provide one month of free self-storage to any of the tenants in need of a secure location to keep their possessions. The 30-day free offer applies to new storage rentals and is based on availability at the Notre Dame store.

“We want the city and the displaced tenants to know we are here to support them,” Pearson said.
