For the fourth consecutive year, CN was recognized as one of Montreal’s Top Employers for 2020 by Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

The Montreal Metropolitan region is home to a large portion of CN’s workforce. More than 3,000 of its employees are based in the area, either at its downtown headquarters or in one of its operating terminals in the region. Montreal’s Top Employers honors local employers who provide excellent work conditions and benefits to their employees. This year’s winners were announced on Jan. 30, 2020, in a commemorative magazine published in the Montreal Gazette.

CN’s online profile details some of the reasons it was chosen as a winner, such as free access to an onsite fitness facility at its headquarters office, an employee share purchase plan, the employee and pensioner-run Community Fund, which has raised more than $17.1 million over 10 years for Canadian charities, as well as the CN Railroaders in the Community program, which provides grants to the nonprofit organizations its employees volunteer for.

CN was also recently honored as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2020. Now in its 20th year, the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition evaluates employers across the country that offer exceptional workplaces for their employees.

“We are delighted to have been selected again for this honor,” said Dorothea Klein, SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, who joined CN in December 2019. “Having recently moved to Montreal, I’m particularly proud of the recognition of CN’s headquarters city as well as CN’s dedication to its employees and the communities in which they work and live.”
