Canadian UFO Research

Among the activities of UFOROM is the compilation of an annual survey of Canadian UFO sightings. This is done with the cooperation of UFO researchers, investigators and groups across the country and represents a major project to understand how the UFO phenomenon is perceived and experienced by the general population. Furthermore, it should be noted this project forms the basis for all speculative works in ufology ranging from alien autopsies, abductions, crash/retrievals and contact stories. It is my contention that if studies of basic UFO reports are not undertaken in an objective and scientific manner, then all the other, more elaborate and speculative efforts are of little value.

With this in mind, in the late 1980s, I began working with all known, active Canadian UFO researchers and investigators in the collection of UFO sighting data, producing an annual national survey of UFO sightings.

The main page for these annual surveys is here. Data, tables and the text reports are available thanks to the hard work of UFOROM associate Geoff Dittman.

The 1998 Canadian UFO Survey is now available here as a WordPerfect for Windows 6.1 in Windows 3.1 format. The News Release is available here.

UFO Sightings Elsewhere Around the World:
Where are all the UFOs? Often, I get questions from UFO buffs and from media who say they haven't heard of any new UFO sightings. Well, here's a site that archives worldwide news stories about UFO sightings and reports: UFO Roundup
There are even UFOs in Russia
Other UFO-related Sites:
I can't include all my favourite sites or those which you might find especially useful, but here are a sampling:
New! NICAP is back! An incredible data and info source created through the resurrection of the original NICAP files and mandate
Project Hessdalen
UFO*BC Index Page
Information (including photos and videos) about the results of UFO skywatches along Lake Ontario
The MicroSoft Network UFO Forum (say Hi to Bill Gates and Diana for me!)
L'information d'OVNI (en francais)
They're back! The Alberta UFO Study Group!
St. John's Haunted Hike (Paranormal events and UFOs in Newfoundland)
UFO Phenomena in the Northwest Territories
How the "Alien Autopsy" Film was hoaxed
Science, Logic and the UFO Debate (One of the most rational, level-headed pages about UFOs - I recommend it to scientists who ask me what serious info is out there)
Crow and Raine's UFO SiteThe home page for the UK UFO chats on IRC
Remote-Controlled Flying Saucers You Can Build! No, I'm not kidding!
MUFON Minnesota
Online Archive of UFO Sightings Reported via the Internet
Greg Long's Ufology and Fortean Phenomena Site
The Swamp Gas Journal
Saucer Smear (a ufozine for cynics)

Want to report your UFO sighting? I created a newsgroup called alt.ufo.reports for people
to post their experiences and receive feedback. Unfortunately, idiots who don't read
the mini-FAQ or the name of the group still tend to post their nonsense about channelled alien
messages and argue about the reality of Roswell, chupas and other stuff. However, the traffic is still
much less than other groups and you stand a better chance of actually having a UFO
investigator read it! Most reports posted here are added to the ftp archive (see above).

If you are in Manitoba, you are invited to report your UFO sighting via e-mail here.
Anonymity will be respected.

Finally, you can find me occasionally on the UFO-related channels on IRC.
this link for information about the undernet #UFO channel. And the
Chatnet #ufo channel, hosted by CrowRaine and RaineCrow. It's reachable
