Help Make Trick-or-Treating Accessible for Everyone

As a City, we’re committed to making trick-or-treating more accessible by helping to remove barriers for children with disabilities in our community by supporting the Treat Accessibility initiative. Did you know that 400,000 Canadian kids live with a disability and some aren’t able to participate in trick-or-treating due to barriers, like stairs to your door? Some trick-or-treaters may have difficulties navigating inclines or curving walkways.

On October 31, help make Halloween in Mississauga accessibly-inclusive by placing your trick-or-treating station at a location that is easily accessible to all. Here are a few simple tips you can take to get started:

Create barrier-free access:

  • Make sure the path to your trick-or-treating station is well lit.
  • Clear your driveway and pathways of any obstacles.
  • Park your vehicle on the street or in your garage to allow easy access.
  • Set up your trick-or-treating station at the end of your driveway or in your garage.
  • If your home doesn’t have a driveway, use your vehicle to trunk-or-treat! Show your creativity and decorate your vehicle to make it extra special.

Create a safe environment:

  • Refrain from the use of strobe lights and high-pitched, sudden loud noises, which may be alarming for some children.
  • Some pets can be intimidating so make sure that they are kept safely away from the front of the house.

Remember, everyone is different. Not everyone can eat candy, so consider handing out non-edible treats such as stickers, pencils, crayons or small toys stored in a bowl, separate from your edible treats. Everyone communicates differently, so remember to be patient and understanding.
