    • Abstract:
      The article offers information on several ghost towns in Canada which were once prosperous but became extinct because of the economic collapse or rural depopulation. Phoenix, British Columbia had more than 4,000 residents before its post-First World War bust, but only a cenotaph and cemetery remain. In the 1890s, Sandon, British Columbia was the heart of Canada's Wild West, a silver-mining community, and Mountain Park, Alberta was a coal mining region but the cemetery remains there.
