Facts about CP in Toronto

  • With the lease of the Ontario & Quebec Railway in 1884 (which held the leases for the Toronto, Grey & Bruce Railway as well as for the Credit Valley Railway), the CPR gained access to the burgeoning Toronto market in addition to a large territory in southern Ontario
  • In 1913, the Canadian Pacific Building on the corner of Yonge and King Streets opened in what was then Toronto's financial district. The Edwardian-style 15-storey skyscraper – then the tallest in the British Empire - was a dramatic change from CPR's Chateau-style of architecture
  • First opened in April 1964, CP's Agincourt Yard near Toronto is one of CP's busiest rail yards
  • Ever visited Roundhouse Park, the Steam Whistle Brewery or Toronto Railway Museum? These are all located at the John Street Roundhouse which was opened by CPR in 1931. It remained in operation for more than 50 years and was then donated to the City of Toronto
  • Today, CP employees more than 1,200 employees in the Greater Toronto Area - the hub of its eastern Canadian operations
