Rail by province

The RAC provincial profiles present Canadian railway industry statistics, broken down by province and territory. The data in the provincial profiles come from RAC members – Class I, local and regional freight railways, as well as tourist, intercity and commuter passenger service providers. 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
  • Additions to Property ($) - track & roadway, buildings & related machinery & equipment, signals & communications, terminals & fuel stations, rolling stock, intermodal equipment, work equipment & roadway machines and other equipment
  • Taxes by locomotive fuel & excise tax, property tax, other sales tax, capital tax & customs duties, income tax and health taxes (for all provinces except Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Northwest Territories).
