Let’s make trick-or-treating accessible and inclusive for everybody!
Over 400,000 children in Canada identify as having one or more disabilities. Disabilities that may prevent them from enjoying trick-or-treating with their siblings and other kids.
The Treat Accessibly lawn sign lets people in your neighbourhood know you support accessible trick-or-treating and is a symbol that promotes accessible and inclusive change. One that tells families that have children with a disability they are welcome to experience Halloween without barriers at your home.
- Place our FREE Accessible Trick-or-Treating sign on your home’s front lawn at least a week before Halloween to give families and caregivers plenty of time to plan their trick-or-treating route.
- Make sure the path to your trick-or-treating area is well lit.
- Clear the driveway and pathways.
- Move cars out of the driveway to allow better accessibility for trick-or-treaters.
- Create a trick-or-treating station at the end of your driveway, out of your garage or vehicle’s trunk.
