10. Cole Island
Location – British Columbia

9.Bankhead
Location – Alberta

8.The Guild Inn
Location – Ontario

Locally known as The Guild,this abandoned place was once an impressive hotel in Scarborough Toronto. Since 1914, the property has switched owners many times. It was even used as a Foreign Mission House for the Roman Catholic Church.
What’s more impressive than the buildings, is the 90 acres around them. The families that owned the property combined many different architectural styles to create gardens that could rival any property in Europe.
For a long time everything on the property was abandoned, nowadays, the gardens serve as a great spot for intimate weddings, and there have been major talks about reviving the hotel too.

7.Stanley Park Zoo
Location – British Columbia

6.Val Jalbert
Location – Quebec.

My French is not great; so lets just get it out of the way; Val Jalbert is located in Quebec and it is listed as a ghost town. Its easy to see why with photos like this one.
The village sprung to existence because of the successful pulp mill in the area. What is a pulp mill you ask? Its an integral part for the creation of PAPER AND STUFF! You take some wood chips add some magic and then you have FIBERBOARD !
The village was founded in 1901 and by 1929 all the homes in the area were boarded up and everyone was ordered to leave….
In the 1960s the location was transformed into a public park. YAY ! Now everyone can enjoy the nature and check out the homes of the workers that used to work in the mill.

5.Celanese Power House
Location – Alberta

4.Grain Elevators
Location – Alberta

This is not just one site, the countryside of Alberta seems to be littered with dilapidated grain elevators.
Like this one in Herronton, a very small town near Calgary. Or this one in Brant.
Grain elevators commonly refer to buildings that store grain, but they can also refer to what we see in these pictures, towers containing bucket elevators that load up containers with grain.
Locals have tried to preserve as much as they can, and have even started the Alberta Grain Elevator Society !

3.Camp 30
Location – Ontario

2.Partridge Island
Location – New Brunswick

This island has quite a long history, located within the city of Saint John, the island was first used as a quarantine station in 1785. It also had a lighthouse and military post on it.
During the Irish Potato Famine it is estimated that around 30,000 people passed through the island for processing, with around 1200 actually dying there. And by 1890, 78,000 immigrants passed through the island a year. The most famous part of the island is the Celtic cross dedicated to those who passed on the island.
There was a museum near the cross that operated until 1995. Since then, the island has become almost a rite of passage for teenagers in the area. With so much to explore, its easy to see how you can be attracted to the haunting past of the land.

1.Queen of Sidney
Location – British Columbia
