Michelle McKay paranormal investigator UFO researcher ghosts haunted paranormal cold spot


Michelle McKay is seen by many as Canada’s go-to paranormal girl. She was the first female paranormal investigator to host a national television show in Canada, and the first female Canadian paranormal investigator to host a television series in the USA. She has been a paranormal investigator for over 20 years specializing in investigating reportedly haunted historical sites and is also a UFO researcher, following her great-uncle’s UFO legacy.

“Michelle McKay is one of Canada’s most-recognized paranormal investigators”¬†(Metro News Ottawa)

“She is the top paranormal investigator in Canada”¬†(107.9 FM Ottawa)


Her great-uncle was pioneer UFO investigator, Henry McKay¬†(1927-2007). He specialized in physical traces of UFOs — when a UFO reportedly landed he rushed to the scene. He was the very first Director of MUFON¬†Canada, was an electrician in the Air Force, and his UFO work has been written about in many books.

Michelle was also a TV host and lead investigator on a television series about ghosts which aired in over 32 countries including Destination America (USA), Discovery I.D. (Canada), A&E Latin America (Bio), and also aired in Denmark, Belgium, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and others.

“Back in the day, when I would tell people that I was a paranormal investigator, they would say ‘a para what?’ I would have to explain to them what a paranormal investigator was. My, how things have changed! Nowadays everybody knows what a paranormal investigator is.” – Michelle McKay

In 2002, she founded Cold Spot Paranormal Research which investigates ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists, and demons. Her interest in ghosts started when she was a child growing up in a haunted house with a poltergeist:

“At 10yrs old I spent most of my days in the library basement reading books about the paranormal, trying to figure out what was going on in my house. Eventually, my friends started inviting me to investigate their houses. So off I went to investigate, as best as I could for a 10-year-old, and it hasn’t stopped to this day. I’m still here doing this.” – Michelle McKay
