About The CP Holiday Train
The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than C$15.8 million and collected 4.5 million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the United States.
Beginning in Montreal on Nov. 25 and 26 respectively, two trains will make the festive journey, travelling through both the U.S. and Canada to bring holiday cheer to 164 communities along CP’s network. Each event is free, with CP encouraging attendees to open their cupboards and wallets to help address hunger needs in their communities. Local food banks will be accepting donations at each stop to ensure those less fortunate have enough healthy food this holiday season.
“The CP Holiday Train is a program that our 13,000-strong CP family has immense pride in bringing to communities every year. Access to nutritious food is a basic necessity, and food bank usage is on the rise across North America. The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support.” – Keith Creel, CP’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
