Canadian Pacific has been touched by the tragic impacts of World War I and World War II. Over 33 thousand CP employees served in the last century’s two world wars. The tradition of service continues, with 44 Canadian and American employees currently listed as reservists.
These brave men and women will be honored at CP’s Remembrance and Veteran’s Day ceremony on November 11 starting at 10:40. Canadian Pacific executives, employees, Police Service officers, pensioners, members of the Lord Strathcona’s Horse Royal Canadians, Canadian Forces King’s Own Regiment, Calgary 41st Brigade Group the 2554 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Cadet Corps and members of the public will recognize their service at a special ceremony at CP’s Calgary Head Office, on 9 Ave SW next to the Steam Locomotive.
In Canada, CP moves Canadian Forces’ equipment and is one of Canada’s most supportive employers of primary Reserve Force personnel. In the United States, CP is a proud partner of the US Army PaYS program, which recruits soldiers interested in obtaining a quality civilian job following service to their country.
