Q: How do I become a professional paranormal investigator?
A: We are non-profit and made up of volunteers so perhaps we are the wrong source to ask. To date we know of no accredited university or non-profit educational institute within the province of Ontario that offers parapsychology or pseudo-science as a major or full-time course and therefore we consider ourselves to be amateurs who are pursuing an enjoyable hobby. The majority of paranormal investigators fund their own research interests independantly and maintain employment within other fields. The best advice we can offer is to READ as much material as you can on your topic/s of interest especially those of varying viewpoints. A good investigator in our opinion will consider ALL possibilities while continually questioning those possibilities reasonably and objectively at the same time. An education in science, history and courses on folklore will also be extremely helpful to you as will networking with others whom share your interests. We wish you all the best in your endeavors!
If you are interested in ghost & hauntings investigations we highly recommend that you read through the PSICAN course book that provides an excellent no-nonsense resource for the beginner!
If you are new to paranormal research online or a newer internet user we encourage you to read the brief, but informative precautionary note written by one of our directors in response to a recent situation that had the potential of becoming a tragedy.
Q: May I use one of your articles, photos etc?
A: With the exception of material presented by outside sources ALL articles, photos, sketches, etc belong and are copyrighted to Para-Researchers Of Quebec and may not be used in any format whatsoever without the express written permission of one of our directors. Just ask first and in most cases we probably will say go ahead - no problem - provided that full (c) - contact info is respected and made available.
