Haunted Places in Canada

Haunted Places in Canada


Who knew the Canadian prairies were so scary! Other places have cemeteries, scary houses on a hill, or buildings that others have created to be scary. Not in the prairies though. Nope. No way! The number of real ghosts, ghost trains, and even haunted hotels will leave you with goose bumps. Here is a very short list of some of the scariest places in the country.


Fort Gary Hotel in Winnipeg

How about a night in the beautiful Fort Gary Hotel? To drive up on this beautiful hotel, you would never know its dark secret. Room 202 is the scariest room in the hotel. As the local legend goes, a couple had been staying in the room. The husband had gone out for the day leaving the woman behind. He died in a car accident and his wife was so distraught she hung herself in the closet. Many say that she can frequently be seen in the corner crying, has asked hotel staff to get her a drink in the bar, and some of the staff has even seen blood running down the wall. Famous figures and staff have had things come flying off the shelves and one woman noticed someone get into bed and lay beside her.

Several other places in Manitoba are haunted. A little girl haunts St. Ignatius School today. She died after falling of the rings in the playground. Many say that when you go on the red rings, you can feel little hands trying to pull you off. Even places like the Ruckers on Regent Ave can be a terrifying experience.


St. Louis, Saskatchewan

Just outside of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan is the little village of St. Louis. Although the town is friendly during the day, the night brings an eerie feeling across the little town. If you look closely, you will notice what looks like a path where railroad tracks once laid. There is a reason they are no longer there! A terrible accident in the area’s history killed a family. The engineer involved in the death of the family became so overran with guilt he killed himself. A train derailment that occurred here as well killed one of the workmen. Today, they say you can now see the engineer and sometimes the workman walking down the tracks with a light. Others say a ghost train still comes through the area.

Weyburn, the home of one of the cruelest mental institutions in the country’s history, has a place of darkness of its own. Many say voices can be heard in the dense trees surrounding the institution that is still in use today. The top floor of the building has been closed off for years, but cries, footsteps, and a ghostly figure have been noticed there.


Banff Springs Hotel

This is one of the most haunted hotels on the planet. Room 873 has since been covered in, but if you look closely, you can find it. The story says that a family was brutally murdered in the room. This was bad enough, but when the staff went to clean the room, they discovered that they couldn’t get the little girl’s fingerprints off the mirror. The noticed other eerie things in the room as well and became so scared they finally blocked off the room.

A set of stairs in the hotel have also been closed in. In this instance, a bride accidentally touched her dress to a candle on the stairs. When her gown burst into flames she panicked, fell down the stairs, and broke her neck. Stories say that she is frequently seen walking through the hotel.

These are just a select few of the haunted places in the Canadian prairies. Some places have only had scary occurrences, but some of these locations have extremely terrifying and tragic stories behind them. So if you are a believer, come out and see for yourself. If you don’t believe in ghosts, the Canadian prairies may just convince you otherwise! If you would like to see a complete list, Shadowlands Haunted Places has a rather comprehensive list of creepy Canadian places to explore.

  2. my auntie used to live in a house when i was about 7 or 8 .. im 13 now but anyways it was so haunted . i went to visit her and her kids one summer for 3 weeks and her house was so haunted. The story is about a guy who hung himself in his house and the place is still haunted.. some of my memories was her 1 or 2 year old baby waking up at exacly 12 am every day .. exacly 12 am , and screaming her face off.. there was also this lighter color shade thing in there room on the wall that would glow .. i even watched painters try to paint over but it never worked. there was multiple days when we would wake up to hear a huge BANG and we would go check and there would be all of her electronics in the middle of the room. The basement was the worst though .. my aunt had a priest come bless her house and he wouldnt go in the basement.. loud noises always came from the basement, and we would find multiple random bloody items down there and it was just horrible … once i heard my baby cousin crying so my aunt asked me to go get her so i did and she was sitting in her crib and i was talking to her for a bit , then i heard footsteps behind me, i thought it was my aunt but i turned around and no one was there so i didnt think much of it. then the lights started flickering , the door slammed and there was someone breathing on my neck .. really heavily.. i screamed .. grabbed my cousin then ran outside yelling “IM NEVER GOING IN THAT HOUSE AGAIN”… then we went to go eat and i had my mom come and pick me up .. it was horrible. I dont know if the house is still there.. but it was the most haunted place ive ever been. i know that this story sounds so fake and u dont have to believe me if you dont want to … but its true.

  3. Go to Canora Sask. and there is a rural area 10 mins north called mohilla and it is the creepiest place in the world. Lots of suicides lots of unexplained deaths, missing people, lots of creepy churches, ghost sitings, disapearing headlights, creepy creature sitings and even some Saskquatch sitings. Trust me you won’t be let down something happens every time i went there.

    • Hi I’m very interested in investigating the area north of Canora, however I have never heard of Mohilla….I live near Yorkton and have toured the area extensively…could you narrow it down for me please? What highway is it on, or junction, is it due north or east/west. Thanks, any info would be greatly appreciated.

  4. There is a house here in Saskatoon, SK. The Marr Residence.. It was the fist building ever built in Saskatoon.. It was a medical clinic for men in the military. But a lady had bought it.. thats when it became the, “Marr Residence” There is a man who had in there from the Military. He is known to be in the basement. its a Legal haunted house. One of the scariest in Canada..

    There is also a school here in Saskatoon, Sk. Called Lester B. Pearson. According to a lot of people and google. There is a tree out side of the pre School doors were the little kids play. and its a VERY odd and scary looking tree.. if you stand under it, or a couple feet near it ALONE, for about 2 minutes. you will feel an intense force that will make it very difficult for you to move out of that spot for a very short period of time.
