Have your donation matched dollar for dollar with our partners

** Online donations open on November 25 **

As the 2013 CP Holiday Trains travel across Canada and the US between November 25 and December 19 CP will match all online donations made to Feeding America & Breakfast Club of Canada’s Holiday Train campaigns.

Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, with more than 200 member food banks serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Feeding America’s food banks secure and distribute more than 3 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually through a network of approximately 61,000 food assistance agencies, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and after-school programs. 

Breakfast Club of Canada’s mission is to offer daily healthy breakfasts in a nourishing environment to all Canadian students. The Club is dedicated to laying a foundation for students to thrive both at school and in life. Across the country, nearly 130,000 children in 1,266 schools can benefit from a wholesome breakfast every morning. This year, it served nearly 21 million breakfasts. Canadian Pacific believes in the positive impact Breakfast Club of Canada has on the lives of Canadian students and their communities. 

 Signature Events

Sheryl Crow and Sarah McLachlan will be joined by Tom Cochrane with Red Rider, The Tenors, Great Big Sea, Matt Dusk, Natalie MacMaster and Take 6 in celebrating the 15th anniversary of the CP Holiday Train. These a-list stars will help CP raise further awareness for charities that help fight hunger in Canada and the U.S.

“Since 1999, our Holiday Train has raised $7.4 million dollars and more than 3 million pounds of food for local charities,” said E. Hunter Harrison, CP’s chief executive officer. “I thank these internationally-renowned artists for joining us in shining a bright spotlight on this important issue.”

Each location includes the concert and on-site activities including the North Pole Station, a magical village featuring family-oriented interactive activities including ice carving, hot chocolate and a chance for the kids to visit Santa before making their way to the concert stage.

While every event is free, please make a donation or bring non-perishable food items. Everything collected at each show stays in the community for local distribution.

Canadian Holiday Train

Melanie Doane

Juno Award winner Melanie Doane has been a recording artist and songwriter in the Canadian music landscape for over 15 years, beginning on a national level with her breakout hit album "Adam's Rib".

Matt Dusk

As an alum of St. Michael’s Choir School who studied under legendary jazz pianist Oscar Peterson at York University, Matt Dusk hit it big with his major-label debut Two Shots, scoring a gold record. With the punchier follow-up Back in Town, he upped the ante and took his act to Hollywood’s fabled Capitol Studio A — the home of heroes and influences like Sinatra, Cole and Darin — and worked with renowned arrangers Patrick Williams and Sammy Nestico, plus Grammy-winning engineer Al Schmitt.  The album garnered two number one singles:  All About Me in Canada and Back In Town in Japan — making Dusk the first male jazz singer to ever top the pop charts.

Jim Cuddy

When Jim got his first guitar at the age of ten, the first song he learned was Gordon Lightfoot’s “That’s What You Get For Loving Me”.  Today, twenty-five years after the formation of Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are widely respected as one of Canada’s best songwriting teams.  In 1998, Jim released All in Time which went on to sell Gold in his native Canada.  His next album, 2006’s The Light That Guides You Home, was released to critical acclaim and won the Juno for Adult Alternative Album of the Year.  On September 27, 2011 Jim released Skyscraper Soul, his 3rd solo album.  His voice, always a voluptuous instrument, has never sounded better and Cuddy proves once again that his songwriting ranks with the best Canada has to offer.

Crystal has toured with the likes of Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Reba McEntire and performed for 55 million people on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.  Crystal kicked off 2012 by storming up the country radio charts in January with the infectious track “Closer”, the first single from her upcoming album “Just Like You”.
