Membership in the Vancouver Interior Paranormal Society is only for the serious investigative mind: a person who wants to try and get to the bottom of the mysteries that surround us. We need members who are willing to make us a high priority in their lives so that we meet the needs of our clients. Are you someone who pays attention to detail? Are you quick, curious and ready to head out most weekends? Here are some of the things we look for (and what you should know about paranormal investigations):

 
                                        MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS

  • You must be at least 21 years of age
     
  • You must drive & have access to a vehicle. Most transit systems don't run when we finally finish up and while we try to help each other out, it might not be possible for you to get a ride from another member. It's also required that you be on time, and transit is not always reliable.
     
  • No criminal record
     
  • No serious health concerns
     
  • Strong computer & time management skills
     
  • Have a cellphone, a Gmail address, and access to Facebook to stay connected daily with the team
     
  • Be a team player working well as in a group or as an individual
     
  • You must have time to dedicate to the team. You will be asked to participate in at least 2 investigations per month, and you will be required to review your own evidence from all investigations & investigators & write brief reports on your evidence. You will also be asked to participate in team meetings, public reveals & events, and interact daily with the team in the VIPS forum.
     
  • Patience. You'll spend hours upon hours upon hours sitting in dust-filled darkness. You might not see a thing for several investigations until one night, something happens. Trust us, it's worth it, but you have to be willing to fight the good fight.

     
  • First and foremost, you need to have an open mind. We're a healthy blend of skeptic and believer and we're a good team because of it. We need people who look for logical answers and accept that sometimes there might not be one.
     
  • Our work is 50% investigations, 50% administration. Being a not-for-profit group, the Vancouver Paranormal Society relies on its volunteers for everything. We need investigators who can turn around and lend a hand in other ways. Don't discount your experience in administration, office skills, public speaking, computers, audio/visual, trades...it means more to us than you know.

     
  • Our group is multi-faith, multi-denominational and we're proud of it. We are all-accepting and insist that all of our volunteers respect each other.
     
  • You must purchase your own basic equipment by the 2nd investigation. (Voice recorder, head phones & audio review program)
     
  • VIPS is a registered non profit society and as we do not have any sponsors, all volunteer expenses such as gas, equipment, t-shirts, business cards etc. must come from our own pockets
