Breaking through barriers for workers
who have children with special needs

Welcome to Special Needs and Moving On Projects!

Special Needs & Moving On projectsThe Special Needs and Moving On Projects provide resources and support for workers at the post office whose children have disabilities. The projects are available to members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees (Public Service Alliance of Canada). The Special Needs Project is geared to families with young children; the Moving On Project is for adult sons and daughters with special needs. Life is more demanding when you work and have a child with special needs. Learn more about our Special Needs and Moving On projects.

Ten Halloween Safety Tips

  1. Children should be accompanied by an adult.
  2. Children should wear clothing that can easily be seen at night. Retro- reflective materials are best.
  3. Children should trick or treat in one well-known area and not wander into unknown neighborhoods.
  4. All candy should be inspected by an adult to make sure that no one has tampered with it. If it looks suspicious, the police should be contacted.
  5. Children should avoid stray animals.
  6. Children should wear masks that do not interfere with vision. Better yet, they can avoid masks by wearing makeup.
  7. Children should watch for moving vehicles when crossing streets.
  8. Costumes should be short enough that the child will not trip.
  9. Trick or treaters should dress appropriately for the weather and carry a flashlight.
  10. For extra safety, organize a Halloween party for children in your neighborhood.
