Creating the world’s first accessible holiday tradition.
In partnership with
Over 400,000 children in Canada and 4 million children in the United States identify as having one or more disabilities. Disabilities that may prevent them from enjoying trick-or-treating with their siblings and other kids. Our grassroots movement started at our family’s home in 2017.
40,000 homes were having a Treat Accessibly Halloween.
100,000 homes in Canada participated in accessible trick-or-treating.
Imagine 400,000 homes across Canada, following Treat Accessibly guidelines.
Treat Accessibly Halloween Villages create a curb-side Accessible Trick-or-Treating experience so that any child of any ability can experience a traditional Halloween.
Villages are scheduled during the day in the weeks prior to Halloween to make it easier for parents and caregivers to plan and organize.
In 2023, thanks to Canadian Tire and local communities, we have Halloween Villages planned in 9 cities across Canada. Our Halloween Villages are FREE to attend, though they do require pre-registration.

Setting up and organizing your trick-or-treating station to be accessible to all children is simple and easy to do. Just follow our tips and you'll have something that's inclusive for your entire community.
Organize an Event
