The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be spreading cheer across Canada once again this year!

The CP Holiday Train shifted to a virtual concert event for the previous two years due to COVID-19, with CP making donations to food banks on behalf of communities.

But CP Spokesperson Salem Woodrow says the annual holiday train will be returning to make its way through Canada this holiday season, as staff hope to collect as much food and raise as much money as they can for food banks across the country.

“We are tremendously proud of the CP Holiday Train program and we’re very happy to have it travel across Canada this year,” says Woodrow. “After two years of virtual shows, we’re more than happy to be back out on the rails – bringing our beautiful train of lights to communities across our network.”

The CP Holiday Train is scheduled to stop in northwestern Ontario on December 3, featuring the musical talents of Tenille Townes and Aysanabee. CP’s schedule says the train will stop in Dryden by 11:30 a.m., Vermilion Bay by 1 p.m. and Kenora by 3:20 p.m.

Since 1999, the CP Holiday Train has helped raise over $20 million and helped to collect over 5 million pounds of food for food banks and those in need across Canada.
