Enabling Canada’s World-Class Supply Chain
Investing in infrastructure, equipment and people
This year, railways are replacing, upgrading and maintaining key infrastructure. In addition, railways have ordered thousands of new, high-capacity grain hopper cars from National Steel Car in Hamilton, Ont., and employ approximately 47,000 people across North America.
Prepared for the 2019-2020 crop year
Canada’s two Class 1 railways – CN and CP – have put in place comprehensive, robust and focused action plans to get Canadian grain safely and efficiently to market during the 2019-2020 crop year. They have shared these plans with the government and are following through on these strategies to ensure Canada maintains its reputation as a reliable export partner. In addition, both railways are voluntarily sharing information about their performance during the 2019-2020 crop year, including details on internal or external factors affecting grain movement.
