The Camp Bison Camp-out, Burwash Ontario. a weekend of hiking, backpacking, and exploring along with some extreme camping deep in the woods- at the abandoned prison in Burwash Ontario. 18 explores came from Toronto, Southern Ontario, Sudbury and Montreal to attend this epic camp out. Some of the weekend's events included: meeting new people and seeing old friends, a scavenger hunt and lonely explorer challenge(w/ prizes), raging bonfire and marshmallows, night time UEing, a giant slumber party, and beautiful sunset/sunrise. Even tho the weather was a little on the cool side, we all had a great time.
The third installment of the Camp Bison Campout, hosted by Match Girl and Logtec. 21 explorers (and 3 dogs) backpacked into the abandoned Bison Prison in Burwash Ontario to spend a fun filled weekend of UE, camping and shenanigans. Guests came from Toronto, Southern Ontario and Sudbury. The weekend's events included: meeting new people and catching up with old friends, an indoor bonfire (thanks fire ban), drinking, wandering aimlessly, sparklers, exploring, and photography. Highlight of the weekend was a surprise late night candle lit tunnel and basement tour organized by Vital Films. Thanks to everyone who came out to help kick off the summer of 2012!
An insane two week exploration ordeal including 30 prime and backup European locations scattered across 4 countries. As one may expect of such an endeavor, there were great successes and outright failures as well as awesome surprises and complete disappointments. Late nights and early days were the ongoing theme. Even with the hectic schedule, time was always made to enjoy the fantastic regional foods, local beers and wines to which the Europeans simply excel. Thanks to everyone who made it out and special thanks to our Non-UER European friends! We will be doing this again soon. I would also like to thank the weather for holding a sunny 30 degrees (except for the UK, where the rain helped with security at the Establishment). Highlights of the trip included the mysterious Laeken Crypt, mining at Hasard and Hugo, the shotgun at Noisy, scrapping at Powerplant IM with a little SRT in the Cooling Tower, the big tease at Château de La Forêt, wandering the many halls of St Hilarius, the exquisite detail of the CDC, the expansive Beelitz-Heilstätten hospital and of course the majestic industry of NGTE Pyestock! 8 attendees from Canada, UK, Luxembourg and Belgium.
This is the 4th edition of the annual urban exploration meeting in Montreal, Québec, Canada. A record 110 guests showed up for the evening.
2015 was the Canada Malting's 110th birthday, and we were back altogether to honour this milestone.
All of the urban exploration enthusiasts in Québec were invited and some came from Ontario and even from France, dressed in their best clothes.We took a group picture with 96 of the guests, far exceeding the 63 of the previous year.
This year, over 150 pictures were exhibited including fifty by the artist & photographer Daniel Guilbert. He presented his clichés of the Canada Malting taken after its closure in the 1980s and later in the 1990s.
The old glass globes were illuminated again by electricity fed into the old fixtures in order to revive the plant as it was 30 years ago. The DJ, the fireplace and all the installations where again at the rendez-vous.

••Here is the 5th edition of UrbexMalt, the annual urbex meet in Quebec.
131 explorers attended the event, exceeding last year’s 100 guests.
UrbexMalt 2016 was probably the biggest meeting of urban explorers to ever be held in America. This year’s group picture shows 113 explorers, wearing their best attire.
Invitations were sent out amongst the exploring scene in Ontario, and 15 talented explorers made the trip to Montreal for a nice meeting at our exploring Mecca.
Once again, the organizers outdid themselves to give their guests a truly original and unforgettable experience.
Another floor was added to the existing setup, adding 3 new exhibition rooms displaying pictures and artefacts, such as documents and various things found inside the Malt Plant.
Overall a total of 360 pictures were on display, including pictures taken by Daniel Guilbert at the Malt Plant over the years, and the Broom Man (Le Balayeur) series by one of the hosts, Guillaume Clément.
The entrance and every passage and staircaise leading to the reception floor were cleand and brightly lit with the building’s original light fixtures.
A dozen rooms were given a full and deep cleaning, including the repairing and reinstalling of the original light fixtures.
5 couches and numerous chairs and benches were laid to provide an absolute level of confort. The remainder of the previous years’ installations was still present : the fireplace underwent a full lifting and new glass doors to prevent the smoke from entering back inside.
We are proud to pay a tribute to this historic place every year, since it is an emblematic part of our passion. This event gives us the opportunity to gather once a year in order to keep our ties strong, as well as creating new ones with the new explorers in the scene.

Here's the 6th edition of UrbexMalt, one of the biggest urban explorers meeting in North America, held once again in Montreal
For the first time this year, the event went international, with guests coming from Australia, USA, UK and of course Canada. This year's event was once again bigger than the previous one, with a total of 180 people who have attended.
Many improvements were done this year, including a huge mural by artist Jean-François Charest, the addition of a cinema room, lighting and ambient effects in the main room, a "fire breathing" performance, stickers made for the occasion, and new artefacts including the building's original blueprints from 1905 and 1930.
The group picture, taken at the same spot every year, was a real challenge to achieve: two levels of 40 feet-long benches were installed to fit the 150 people present on the picture.
