Surprisingly, there are a lot of interesting haunted places in Canada. From castle-like hotels to seafood restaurants to ordinary parks, nowhere is safe from spooky paranormal activity. Here are Canada’s most haunted places — are you brave enough to visit them?
Craigdarroch Castle was built between 1887 and 1890. Robert Dunsmuir, a wealthy Scottish immigrant, built the castle for his wife, Joan and their 10 children. The castle is now a National Historic Site and gives visitors a “glimpse of privileged life in the 1890s.” There has been a lot of paranormal activity noted at the castle, including the ghosts of a little girl, a maid, a crying child, and a woman in a white dress (presumably Joan Dunsmuir). People have also heard music playing by itself, and whispers as they walk through the property.
St. Francis Xavier University
Located in Nova Scotia, St. Francis Xavier University is apparently haunted by nuns. The Sisters of Notre Dame opened Mount St. Bernard College in the late 19th century as a school for Catholic girls. Now a residence, students have reported books being knocked over, echoing footsteps, elevators with minds of their own, and apparitions. It’s reported that Gilmora Hall is haunted by a nun who fell in love with a priest, but felt so much guilt she committed suicide by jumping from the top of the hall.
