From October 23-27, brave visitors can take part in the Fort York After Dark Lantern Tours to tour the grounds at night, hear the ghost stories, and learn about the spooky history.


The Exhibition Place, known for its fun attractions in Toronto and Hamilton, also features Screemers for the last two weeks of October. There are six blood-curdling walkthrough attractions, a slaughter house theatre presentation and unlimited carnival rides at the Field of Screams Midway.

Halloween Fright Fest

Montreal always gets in on the haunted fun at La Ronde's Fright Fest. Every weekend from October 6-28 including October 8th, La Ronde morphs into a truly scary venue with its different activity zones. The traditional, ever-popular Haunted House will also be back to scare visitors.

Vogue Theatre

If you’re looking for a spooky place to check out on the West Coast, visit the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, which is believed to be inhabited by two ghosts. One has been said to open doors in the dressing room and the other appears, dressed in a tuxedo, in the seating area.

Chills for CHEO

Get scared for a good cause and visit the haunted house Chills for CHEO. Hosted by the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), this seasonal event includes a 3,000-square-foot haunted house designed to scare any, and all, visitors.

The Haunted Shop

Those in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area should go to The Haunted Shop, Canada's first themed gift shop dedicated to ghosts, the paranormal and everything spooky.

Banff Springs Hotel

While it's a beautiful hotel and setting, there's also scary tales of hauntings here. The ghost of a bellman is said to move luggage and unlock rooms, and voices are often heard down the hallways.

Government House

If you're in Regina and you love being spooked, go to the Bump in the Night event at the Government House. Adults and teens, ages 14+, are invited for a more eerie experience with outdoor tours and inside stories – you never know who you’ll bump into.

Niagara Falls Fear Factory

Touted as the country's scariest, the Fear Factory is located on the site of the once industrious "Cataract Coffin Factory" and has frightened over 100,000 people to date.
