The scariest part of Halloween night? Running out of candy for hungry trick-or-treaters.

Well, thanks to Census Mapper you can avoid this tragedy altogether with their handy Trick-or-Treat Onslaught Estimator that’s been put together using data collected in both the 2006 and 2011 census.

This interactive Canada-wide map estimates the number of children of ‘prime trick-or-treat’ age per doorbell in various areas, aiming to give adults a heads up when it comes to the amount of candy they will need.

The darker the section the more children living in the area, and the more likely you are to get an onslaught of costume-clad kids at your door tonight. It looks like there are a handful of areas that will be very spooktacular for trick-or-treaters in Montreal this year.

According to the map, the busiest neighbourhood in Montreal is in Cote St. Luc between Boulevard Cavendish and Boulevard Henri-Bourassa, which has a ‘trick-or-treat’ value of 62.5%
