From the Prime Minister as Clark Kent (yes, really) to Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu as Wonder Woman and Erin O’Toole’s dog as a lion, here are some of the most memorable Halloween costumes from Canadian politicians and of their families.

Clark kent

In 2017, the Prime Minister chose to dress as Clark Kent / Superman on October 31.

It’s certainly not the worst disguise Trudeau has ever done, but it’s not one of the best either.

On the bright side, her three kids look pretty cool, especially young Ella-Grace as Wonder Woman.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Princess Leia

In 2020, Jagmeet Singh and his wife Gurkiran Kaur Sidhu were awarded their Star wars for Halloween, dressing up as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Princess Leia.

Both costumes are pretty impressive, and Kaur gets extra points for making a movie reference (albeit a common one) in Insta legend. Bonus marks for the lightsaber too, Jagmeet!

The Mandalorian

Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole went all out for the occasion in 2021, dressing her entire family and even sharing a video on Instagram showing off their outfits and impressive decor.

While he opted for a costume inspired by The Mandolorian (with his own Baby Yoda), another member of his family dressed as M&M, while his dog transformed into a lion for the evening. Cute, eh?

Han Solo

Sci-fi films are a popular choice for politicians, it seems, as the Trudeau couple opted for a Star wars theme for their Halloween release in 2015.

The kids added a little flair like Elsa’s Frozen and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but it’s clear JT was just looking for a slightly more comfortable costume that year!

Sherlock holmes

While it’s probably not a bad thing that Justin Trudeau played it safe with his most recent dress-up companies, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau clearly remembers that Halloween is for spooky outfits.

In 2018, the Prime Minister opted for a Sherlock Holmes-inspired costume, while Sophie did everything like a terrifying dead white witch. Oh, and his son disguised as an ax murderer (very cool!).

Captain Kirk


In 2017, then-Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer also opted for a sci-fi themed outfit.

Channel Captain Kirk from Star trek, he joked on Twitter that “candy resistance is futile.”

It’s a classic Halloween daddy joke, but it’s a little bit funny.

The pilot and the little prince

In 2016, the Prime Minister disguised himself as a pilot of The little Prince, while her youngest son disguised himself as a little prince.

Her two other children returned to Halloween basics, wearing iconic costumes like the Joker from Batman and a witch. Classic!

In 2018, two MPs introduced the Scary Season to Parliament, disguising themselves as Statler and Waldorf from The Muppets.

The costumes are pretty good actually, and the setting makes this shot all the more perfect!
