Making communities better places to live and work

We are proud of the hundreds of CN employees, their families, and retired employees who give generously of their time to local causes through our CN Railroaders in the Community program. They are part of the fabric of the many cities, towns and villages across our entire North American network, helping to make their communities better places to live and work.

CN supports their efforts, by providing grants to the organizations where our CN railroaders volunteer. The grants encourage a spirit of caring, and support our railroaders’ endeavours to make a difference in their communities.
