Member Railways

Rail is the backbone of Canada’s transportation system; it’s efficient, safe, secure and sustainable, and truly moves the Canadian economy. Canada’s railways transport 75 million people and close to 70 per cent of all intercity surface goods in Canada every year, while relieving road congestion and helping limit harmful emissions. They also employ some 32,000 people across Canada.

As the voice of Canada’s railway industry, RAC advocates on behalf of its members to ensure that the railway sector remains globally competitive, sustainable, and most importantly, safe. Governments consult with RAC in developing new regulations, rules and standards, and the association works to encourage regulatory stability and certainty, investment and growth.
