There has been an influx of families moving to The Plateau in recent years. Apartment complexes, duplexes, and houses are all pretty close, so you can grab a big haul without having to go too far.

We recommend heading near Parc Lafontaine; it’s sure to be a candy mecca.

Westmount is one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in Montreal. The mountainside neighbourhood is absolutely stunning, has an abundance of families, and is a great place to spend Halloween. If you don’t mind hiking uphill, that is.

It’s quiet, family-friendly, and you can bet houses are going to be giving away some pretty high-end candy.

Rosemont is one of the most festive neighbourhoods in the entire city. If you love Halloween (I’m talking about all the spooky aspects, not just the candy), then Rosemont is a must. In addition to the streets upon streets of houses giving out candy, Rosemont features a haunted alley complete with costumed actors giving out candy and ensuring things get a little bit scaryā€¦

NDG is a trick-or-treating hot spot. The decorations are great, there’s a good selection of parks, it’s easily walkable, and the candy haul is pretty solid.

Villeray, recently voted one of the best neighbourhoods in the world, is extremely festive and beautiful and safe for a Halloween stroll.

You’ll find a bunch of houses decorated in the Halloween spirit, and the candy return is pretty top-notch.

Similar to Westmount, Outremont is also known as being affluent. The neighbourhood has many families, it’s quiet, not very traffic-heavy, and very festive. Prepare for some good candy (maybe even the regular-sized candy bars).
