Every Halloween little ghosts, goblins, and ghouls get their costumes on and hit the streets with their friends in search of candy, chocolate, and freights. It’s the night kids wait for all year long. But for many, trick or treating isn’t always as easy or accessible as it should be. For kids with accessibility challenges, staircases, steep or long driveways, crowded front entrances, or narrow pathways are barriers. Sometimes, these barriers can stop them from trick or treating all together.
This year RE/MAX INTEGRA introduced a unique pilot program and unleashed it to our network to tackle this issue. Designed by Padulox, the signs are meant to show your support for children who have accessibility needs. We want to let kids be kids and enjoy Halloween to its fullest potential.
Released at the beginning of October, the Accessible Trick or Treating yard signs make a statement during the Halloween season in neighbourhoods all across our region. We had hundreds of signs ordered by RE/MAX agents and extensive media coverage on this pilot program, which you’ll find below!

Across the RE/MAX Network in our region, offices and Agents shared photos of their signs and promoted them to their clients. The impact was tangible as signs were popping up online and in real life across our communities!

Halloween is coming up and we want to make it special for all kids. When you place a sign on your lawn, it shows you are aware that some children may have trouble getting to the front door and will do whatever you can to be inclusive. Talk to your local remax agent to get a sign for your lawn. . . . . . #remaxcondos #remax #remaxhalloween #halloween #trickortreat #accessiblehalloween #accessibletrickortreat
