Making communities better places to live and work

At CN, we are proud to be part of the fabric of the many cities, towns and villages across our entire North American network.

Every year, CN railroaders contribute thousands of hours of personal time to make their communities better places to live and work. It is part of our company’s long and proud tradition of community involvement.

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

Thank you for your interest in the CN Railroaders in the Community Program.

The 2017 Program is now closed. The 2018 Program will reopen in the new year.

Please check back for all the exciting details then.
