PROMOTING

CANADIAN CULTURE

SUPPORTING CANADIAN

MILITARY AND VETERANS

We actively support members

of the Canadian military,

veterans and their families by

providing them with targeted

discounted fare packages,

contributing in-kind trip credits

and attending events with

several non-profit organizations.

In 2015, we supported the

Vimy Foundation, the Canadian

Armed Forces, the Annual

Canadian Army Run, the

Regiment des Fussiliérs Mont

Royal, the Royal Military

College of St. Jean, and the

Royal Canadian Legion.

ENCOURAGING CANADA’S

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES

In our efforts to encourage both

official languages in Canada, we

supported 16 community group

events including Franco-Fête,

Theatre Français de Toronto,

Théatre Cercle de Molière,

the Morrin Centre, Centaur

Theatre Company and the

English Montréal School Board.

We also supported 24

professional writers for a

book writing project with

in-kind tickets on our Ocean

train from Halifax to Toronto.

Canadian Legion to present a poppy

to all passengers who travelled on our

trains during Veterans’ Week to pay

tribute to those who served our country

with their lives.

PARTNERING WITH

NEW CANADIANS

Through an ongoing strategic

partnership with the Institute

for Canadian Citizenship, we

continued to offer new citizens

fare discounts on our trains.

Since the launch of the program

in 2012, over 16,500 trips were

taken by new citizens, 8,688 of

which were taken in 2015.
