Welcome to Ontario Ghost Towns

People often ask how many ghost towns are there in Ontario? Probably hundreds! Some exist in name only whereas others,although mere shadows of their former selves, continue to support small populations.

Still other communities that once supported viable industries have been reduced to dust and rubble,indistinguishable from the elements that surround them.

Even though these settlements tried and failed, all of them managed to play a small part in Ontario's past and deserve some recognition.

There are over 200 communities listed in this site. Select an area and begin your exploration.
