“We are very excited about this year’s CP Holiday Train and are encouraging all event attendees to bring healthy, nutritious food items to the shows,” said Pam Jolliffe, Interim Executive Director, Food Banks Canada. “For the last two decades, CP has played an integral role in raising essential food for the holidays and in raising awareness of hunger-related issues.”
Two trains decorated in string lights will make stops coast to coast along routes through Canada and the US. The all-Canadian route will feature live performances and will raise food and dollar donations to stay with local food banks in the community.
Departing from the Montreal-area on November 26 and making stops along the way, the festive train will make three stops in the GTA in Oshawa, Toronto, and Vaughan.
