Facts about CP in Saskatoon

  • Although the area had been inhabited for many years, Saskatoon was formally established as a settlement in 1881, the same year the CPR was incorporated
  • The railway first arrived in Saskatoon in 1890
  • CP opened the Saskatoon Station on June 15th, 1908 to serve as a passenger depot, telegraph station, mail and freight depot. The building was sold and restored and is now a restaurant (Tomas the Cook Family Restaurant)
  • Today, CP employs approximately 160 people in Saskatoon
