HURRY! There are only two weeks left to order your ‘Treat Accessibly’ signs – don’t miss out on this movement, to make trick or treating accessible for everybody this Halloween!
By ordering and displaying the ‘Treat Accessibly’ sign on your front lawn, you are making a commitment to remove all barriers for children with accessibility issues (e.g. staircases, steep or long driveways, crowded front entrances, or narrow pathways).
In addition to be able to order custom signs to hand out to your current or prospective clients, starting on October 20th, these signs will be available for FREE to consumers at 160 Home Depot locations across Canada as well.
We’ve made it easy for you to order signs in bundles of 10, (at a cost of $5/sign) to use in your marketing efforts this Fall. We encourage to order your signs by October 10th to ensure timely delivery. The signs should be placed on lawns one or two weeks prior to Halloween for maximum visibility!
We ask you to like and follow @treataccessibly pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Treat Accessibly’s robust and helpful series of content posts and videos will permit you and your agents to re-post, re-tweet and share established content for the program that has been pre-approved by both RE/MAX and The Home Depot.

Did you know that over 400,000 Canadian children and youth live with accessibility issues, making everyday activities a daunting task. This includes trick-or-treating on Halloween, the one activity that many children look forward to each year. Children with accessibility issues feel discouraged due to lack of accessible homes, particularly when siblings and friends can trick-or-treat on Halloween and they’re left behind. By placing this sign on your front lawn, a few days prior to Halloween, you are signalling to your community that this home is accessible for trick-or-treating.
You can help make Halloween accessible for everybody!
Be sure to include the following @s and #’s to increase visibility:
With our Treat Accessibly program experiencing tremendous growth, interest has come from a variety of municipalities across Canada. In order to stay in good standing with our partners, including The Home Depot, we ask that you keep the following in mind:
- There are two distribution points for the signs: The Home Depot (160 English Canada Locations) and participating RE/MAX agents (available to all agents)
- “How to:treataccessibly.com” is a mandate on any materials promoting the program including the Accessible Trick or Treating lawn sign as the site communicates how to participate and share key points from municipal by-law codes related to lawn-signs.
- The former is important to avoid people not executing the program as mandated (i.e. removing stairs from process) and the latter ensures the program compliant, to the best of its ability, with by-laws around use of signs.
- The Accessible Trick or Treating sign lock-up is a Trade-Marked symbol. Use outside the agreed sign production and messaging, should be run by RE/MAX INTEGRA for approval.
