PSICAN - Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada

British Columbia

We received the following report in November 2009:

"My family and I have been living in this house for almost three years. I have seen I guess you could call them shadow people or a person who seems to walk across my house (interior) and my husband has seen a person running down our driveway only to vanish on the steps leading to our deck.

I don't feel personally that this is harmful, but more of a startling nature and its on almost a daily basis but not meant to harm. I don't know how I know this but that's the case."

Our thanks to the witness for sharing this experience with us, and our readers. We appreciate it, and hopefully this will bring some comfort to others who may be experiencing something similar in the knowledge that they are not alone.  If you have experienced something you think may be paranormal in British Columbia or elsewhere in Canada please contact us at Your privacy will be protected, and confidentiality is assured.

Webmaster's note: The number of reports of "shadow people" continue to rise around the globe since we first saw a surge of them in the 1990s. This seems to be a phenomenon that is experienced by a diverse group of people that crosses all cultural, and socio-economic bounds.
