About

Toronto's landmark Royal York Hotel has been a fixture on the city's growing skyline for almost a hundred years. Located directly across from the bustling Union Station, this upscale hotel has 28 floors and 1,048 rooms. Many stories persist of hauntings in the old building, most on the 8th floor - where the spirit of a gray-haired man in a burgundy smoking jacket and slacks has apparently been seen walking the hallway at night. 

There are also reported sightings of a ghostly apparition of a former employee, who apparently hung himself from the stairwell railing on the 19th floor. Additionally, guests have reported strange occurrences with the elevator on the 8th floor - that opens and closes repeatedly at night despite nobody using it. Children have been heard running up and down the hallway in the middle of the night. Many employees apparently refuse to visit the 8th floor during the midnight shift.

So are these really hauntings, or the wild imaginations of insomniac guests? Or is it nothing more than a publicity or marketing stunt?

It's high time to find out once and for all!

We are two seasoned investigators, who are known as THE MEN IN WHITE. We have over 60 years of real-life investigative experience between us, and know how to find answers. Now furthering our efforts into the supernatural realm, we would like to investigate supposed hauntings if we can raise enough funds to cover our expenses. At about $500/night, the Royal York Hotel is not cheap. And we want to spend at least two nights there to conduct a full and thorough investigation and seance.

We will aim to include HALLOWEEN night, but that will obviously depend upon room availability once we're able to raise enough funds to commit.

We will be taking photos, videos and audio recordings during our investigation, and will provide all evidence along with a full detailed investigative report upon the conclusion of our inquiry. Our aim is to either make contact with any supernatural entity that resides within the Royal York, or expose it as wishful thinking. Everyone who makes a donation will be provided a copy of our report, with photos and video.

We plan to embark on a series of exploratory supernatural missions upon the conclusion of this investigation. Please watch for additional Kickstarter campaigns for more of our adventures down the road.

Risks and challenges

For such an assignment, any participants must be completely fearless. Investigators must run toward noise or materializations, rather than away from them. Our three-person team (2 men, 1 woman) will brave any spooky situation to find the truth. If there are projectors, recordings, or any form of deceit, we will expose it. We have an arsenal of both generalized real-world detective equipment, as well as "spirit-detecting" equipment such as digital EVP recorders, K2 EMF reader, laser grid pen, P-SB11 spirit box, and much more.

As seasoned investigators we are experts at recording in low-light conditions, using ultraviolet, infrared and thermal recording gear. We are well versed in strategies of supernatural investigations, and will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of the truth - whether it is revealed to be fact, fraud or fantasy.

We are the experts. You know who to call.
