Canadian Pacific Christmas Holiday Train

The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train hits the rails again on November 25 and will be visiting over 150 communities across our network. Each event features a boxcar stage, a lineup of great musical talent and a contribution to the local food bank. Everyone who attends is encouraged to donate food and money which stays in their community.

Since its inception in 1999, we’ve raised more than $7.4 million and over 3 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada.
