The restaurant came in fifth place nationally with its reports of a little girl from the 19th century, among other ghosts haunting the halls.
As one of the oldest buildings in the country, L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel has witnessed plenty. And with such a long history, there are bound to be some ghosts, right?
Built in 1668 by a French soldier, the building has had many tenants but has predominantly served as a place for folks to eat, drink and spend the night. It was in fact the first auberge in Canada to receive a liquor license way back in 1754, according to its website.
These days, L'Auberge Saint-Gabriel is an upscale restaurant, bar and banquet venue.
The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse in Ontario was found to be the most haunted place in Canada. The Charles Carnell Hospital in Edmonton, an abandoned railroad in rural Saskatchewan, and Waterfront Station in Vancouver rounded out the top five.
As for the spookiest provinces, Casino en ligne put Ontario at the top of the list with 23 haunted locations. It's followed by Alberta (15), Saskatchewan (12), British Columbia (11) and Quebec (10).
Close this article now if you're afraid of the dark. Cornwall, Ontario's former SDG Jail is set to host nighttime ghost and paranormal activity hunts this September and October.
The event is organized by Ontario-based haunted tour company The Haunted Walk and Phantoms of Yore.
Participants will sit through a "full briefing on the haunted history of the site" — which, according to the company website, includes murders and executions — to set the mood before heading into the 19th-century building to search for any lingering ghouls or lost souls.
The Haunted Walk website indicates that ghost hunters will also receive the necessary equipment for their search.
The "paranormal investigations," as they're called, will take place on five dates: September 17 and 18, and October 22, 23 and 29.
There are several starting time slots available, ranging from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Each 3.5-hour experience can accommodate a maximum of eight people.
Get the details below.

"Originally from Cambodia, the two owners have operated the family business almost single-handedly for the past two decades [...] This kind of accessible, local business is essential in a neighbourhood like Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, especially on Sainte-Catherine Street," said Leduc.
Leduc said the couple decided to retire after the building's owner did not renew the lease due to "real estate speculation." In other words, an opportunity to buy low and sell high.
Oun told MTL Blog she plans to "put the keys in the door" in one month, around mid-September.

The people behind Flamos Peri Peri Chicken are betting that a new twist on a classic recipe will help them break into Montreal's crowded chicken market.
The brand-new chain restaurant recently opened its first location at 72, boul. Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Châteauguay with a menu inspired by African, South American and European flavours and headlined with a unique and interesting twist on classic piri piri chicken.

By all accounts, Montrealers love their Portuguese-style chicken, grilled to perfection and bathed in piri piri sauce, but set aside those presuppositions when it comes to the uniquely flavoured bird coming out of Flamos' kitchen.
"We have been in the restaurant business for 32 years and have always been challenging ourselves to open different concepts over these years by always being creative, innovative and developing different and great tasting meals that people love," a spokesperson told MTL Blog. "We have succeeded in creating a very unique taste. Our chicken is unlike anything you have ever tried."

Aside from their signature chicken, they're also offering refreshing salads, bowls, sandwiches, a variety of imaginative poutines, and desserts. There's also a selection of sauces and a vegan burger.
But wait, there's more. Don't even think about walking away without an order of Coq Mac n' Cheese, cooked with karaage popcorn chicken, cavatappi pasta, aged cheddar, mozzarella, Parmigiana Reggiano, Grana Padano, green onions, and finished with a drizzle of chipotle aioli sauce.
Flamos Peri Peri Chicken is opening locations in Lachenaie and Terrebonne in August and September, respectively, while Ontarians will be able to enjoy this unique cuisine in Mississauga and Kitchener in the fall, with more restaurants to open next year.
