The 2004 Canadian UFO Survey: Summary of Results
- There were 882 UFO sightings reported in Canada in 2004 C or
more than two each day.
- There were about 31 per cent more UFO reports in 2004 than
2003. The number of UFO reports filed per year in Canada
has been increasing steadily since 1998.
- Records show that more than 5,000 UFO sightings have been
officially reported in Canada since 1989.
- Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia,
Newfoundland and Quebec all had all-time record high numbers
of UFOs reported in 2004.
- In 2004, about 15 per cent of all UFO reports were
unexplained. This percentage of unknowns falls to about
seven per cent when only high-quality cases are considered.
- Most UFO sightings have more than one witness.
- The typical UFO sighting lasted almost 20 minutes in 2004.
The most important findings of this study include the fact that
the number of UFO sightings in Canada has increased over the
past sixteen years, and 2004 saw an all-time record high number
of sightings reported. People continue to report observing
unusual objects in the sky, and some of these objects do not
have obvious explanations. Many witnesses are pilots, police and
other individuals with reasonably good observing capabilities
and good judgement. Although most reported UFOs are simply
lights in the night sky, a significant number are objects with
definite shapes observed within the witnesses= frame of
Popular opinion to the contrary, there is yet to be any
incontrovertible evidence that some UFO cases involve
extraterrestrial contact. The continued reporting of UFOs by the
public and the yearly increase in numbers of UFO reports
suggests a need for further examination of the phenomenon by
social, medical and/or physical scientists.
