Rail by province

The RAC provincial profiles present Canadian railway industry statistics, broken down by province and territory.

Each provincial profile contains the following information:

  • Freight Transportation Revenue Traffic - carloads originated, tons originated, freight train miles and revenue ton-miles
  • Employees and Members - number of employees, active RAC members, total compensation
  • Infrastructure - miles of track operated
  • Fuel - gallons of freight fuel consumed, gallons of passenger fuel consumed
