CP is well-positioned and ready to move this year’s western Canadian grain crop, which is forecast to be significantly bigger than the five-year average. CP is calling on all supply chain partners to work collaboratively to continue moving record amounts of grain, as CP did during 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 crop-years.
CP has also sent a letter to the federal ministers of transportation and agriculture outlining preparation for the crop year and calling for supply chain collaboration.

Working in close collaboration with Canadian government officials, CP has been developing a system that will allow for open and transparent sharing of information to government on its grain movements. In addition to the information being shared with Transport Canada, CP is voluntarily launching a weekly supply chain scorecard. The scorecard outlines CP's performance for the previous grain week and includes, when necessary, detailed information on any internal or external factors affecting grain movement. The scorecard includes movements of Western Canadian grain and grain products consistent with those required by the minimum mandate legislation of 2013-14, as well as movements of soybeans and other non-regulated principal field crops.
