Best Halloween Events in Toronto For A Scary Good Time

October 24, 2022

When it comes to a memorable Halloween, experience is everything. Whether it’s the scary storytelling or the anticipation-filled haunted houses, the best experiences build up tense feelings, include some mystery, and provide that adrenaline-seeking jump scare, or a great photo opportunity for social media.

There are different experiences that are happening all over Toronto this year, so it’s important to know what type of event you would like to go to first before you purchase tickets.

For Halloween events, there are ghouls ghost walks, fun Halloween costume parties, theatre shows, movie festivals, and classic haunted houses.

Here are our recommendations for the Top Halloween Events Around Toronto

The Howland Inn Séance

Those who dare can join a small group of 16-18 other guests to try to make it through one of the Greater Toronto Area’s scariest experiences, The Howland Inn Séance. This experience is a spine-chilling recreation of an authentic Victorian Séance that takes place in one of Toronto’s oldest and most haunted Inns. It’s a psychological experience not for the weak or faint of heart and is for those over 18+ years of age.

Fort York After Dark

History buff? Tour the historic Fort York in a different light. Fort York After Dark is a spooky lantern tour of the grounds of Fort York and its historic surroundings! Learn about a haunted lighthouse that’s on the property and the Battle of York, explore the military burial ground and tour the creepy shadows and 200-year-old buildings of Fort York at night.


Can it really be Halloween in Ontario without SCREEMERS? SCREEMERS is celebrating its 28th year and they are excited to be back to deliver a fear-filled production. There is a lot to enjoy with this event including 7 haunted walks through mazes with over 120 people there to help you have all the scares and shrieks you need. They also have food trucks and a Midway of Madness, and a fully licensed VAMPIRE LOUNGE on the property to make a whole night of it.

Toronto After Dark Film Festival

Looking for more of a movie experience? The Toronto After Dark Film Festival is perfect to grab some popcorn and stay on the edge of your seat for what’s going to happen next. Every year it attracts over 10,000 attendees who love a good horror, science fiction, or action movie. There will be 10 feature films and even 26 short films to enjoy from Canada and the world.

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas – In Concert

Haunted houses and ghost walks not for you? Enjoy a classic Halloween movie accompanied by a live orchestra celebrating The Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton’s cult classic Halloween film comes to life and is projected on the big screen while Danny Elfman’s delightfully quirky score is performed live by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Costume Party Haunted Hotel at Mister C

Staying at one of our DelSuites and looking for something to do for Halloween night? Be sure to put on your best costume and head to Mister C in downtown Toronto for a Halloween costume party. Only located a 5-minute walk from our 300 Front St. West property!

From haunted houses to historical ghost walks, there is something for everyone this Halloween. We hope you all stay safe, dress to impress and enjoy the spooky season of upcoming events, and most importantly, have a scary good time this year.

How to Make Your Relocation Run Smoothly

October 17, 2022

Whether you are relocating for professional opportunities, being prepared for the move can make the transition much less stressful.

Here are some tips to keep in mind that will make your relocation go more smoothly.

Consider a Relocation Package

If you are moving for work, your company may have a relocation package which can be a big help. These packages may include temporary housing, a city orientation, education, government registration, health care, moving services and other services to help you get settled in. These services can even help you to set up things such as car insurance, banking, cable and television providers and more. It really helps to have support on your side when you are undergoing a relocation.

Orient Yourself With The City

One of the first steps will be to get yourself oriented in your new home. Many relocation packages will include a city orientation which will give you an overview of the city and help you to get your bearings. You’ll learn about how the city is laid out, how public transport works and where important amenities are located. This will also help you to determine where in the city you want to base yourself. You can figure out the best location that is close to schools, shopping malls and your place of work, while still within your price range.relocation

Fill Out The Required Government Registration and Immigration Forms

If you are relocating to another country you will need to go through the immigration process. This will require a lot of official documents, such as birth certificates, work permits and other legal paperwork.  If documents need to be authenticated, it is easier to arrange this before moving. A relocation service can also assist with organizing this documentation and making sure every box is ticked.

Explore A Temporary Housing Solution

Finding the right place to live before you move to a new country can be difficult. You may need to base yourself somewhere for the short term while you do your research and shop around for a home. Temporary housing for relocations, such as the apartments offered by DelSuites, is very convenient and much more economical than a hotel. Look for a short-stay property near your place of work to save time.

Consider Your Proximity To HealthcareRelocation

It’s also very important to think about healthcare and how you will access it in your new location. Will you be covered by the health insurance provided by your employer? You should also register with a dentist and a doctor near where you live – before you fall ill.

Find School/Education Services

If you are travelling with children you’ll also want to consider where they will be going to school. Do some research into the schools in the area to determine which one will be the best fit for their educational needs.
