CP Keeping Christmas, Virtually

Canadian Pacific inaugurated its Holiday Train in 1999, and every year since it has traveled across Canada and the northern U.S., raising money, collecting food and drawing attention to the important work of local food banks. In its first 21 years, the train raised $17.8 million and collected 4.8 million pounds of food for local food banks in communities along CP’s network. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CP won’t operate the Holiday Train, but it will instead donate to food banks and host a virtual concert.
