PARAVI’s Susanne Gilby and Ed Sum were interviewed on Job Talk Radio BC. Here, they talk about what the group does and dispel some myths along the way about what goes bump in the night. Check it out here.
Just in case people are wondering where we’ve moved to, or what happened to those general meetings, they are now being held at Maple Leaf School of Ballet Studio, located on 310 Henry St. (View Royal area) on every second Saturday now.

The following are pictures of supposedly haunted places located in Northern Vancouver Island. Most of these images are from the Cumberland Region. Thanks to Denise Longland for providing these photographs.
Thanks to the new members who enjoy photography, this website is getting a facelift of sorts. Soon to come will be pictures of supernatural North Vancouver Island and as some visitors may have noticed, more images will be accompanying the information pages herein. Also, if you like to write articles about the paranormal, telling your story, please do not hesitate to contact us as a new section is being considered for folks with theories to share or simply a tale to tell.
With the first month nearly finally done, the team at PARAVI is looking forward to provide assitance in potentially solving some ghostly activity. We also want to wish everyone a belated happy new year!
Its been a busy month for our team – and also hard to keep these kind of investigative opportunities “under wraps.” Two weeks ago, we were given the amazing opportunity to investigative the exclusive Victoria Golf Club and green in Oak Bay, famous for the Doris Gravlin murder and Hauntings.

Stay tuned for more information on this fantastic investigation – coming soon
Happy Halloween and Blessed Samhain everyone!
We would like to thank Michaela from Point Ellice House for giving us the honour of being able to investigate this amazing historical home and garden.
Built in 1861, Point Ellice House is a beautiful & original Victorian home found on the Gorge Waterway. It contains one of America’s largest collections of Victoriana and gorgeous gardens which is full of Hollyhocks and Roses. (http://www.pointellicehouse.ca)
From May to September and a limited time in November through December, they host tours, teas and special events. However, Point Ellice is also one of those local places which has many stories about it which include encounters with ghosts, mainly those of its previous residents/owners.
Of all the stories, none is more “famous” than that of the encounter with the “Lady in Blue”, believed to be Kathleen O’Reilly. Some visitors have mentioned a woman matching Kathleen’s description, dressed in a blue period dress, conducting tours of the house. (“Ghost Stories of British Columbia” – By Jo-Anne Christensen)
It is also very near the location of one of the worst disaster’s in BC and Transit history, the Point Ellice Bridge disaster. On May 26, 1896 a streetcar crowded with 143 holidaymakers on their way to attend celebrations of Queen Victoria’s birthday, crashed through Point Ellice Bridge into the Upper Harbour. 55 men, women and children were killed in the accident. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Ellice_Bridge_Disaster)
Who knows what other spirits may find safe harbour or wander the grounds.
Stay tuned for videos, photos and audio from our investigation at this fantastic location.
We also highly recommend visiting this high energy location for an amazing peek into history, for tea and a tour, a visit to its gardens and perhaps and a potential paranormal encounter.
We are absolutely thrilled, honored and excited to have been given the opportunity to do a private investigation one of the very well known and infamous haunts of Victoria.
Although we cannot announce the location yet, we will be allowed disclosure once the investigation is complete and as we are reviewing evidence.
Stay tuned for the first photos, videos and any audio clips which may be deemed of interest.
