​​​​​​​​​​​The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than C$13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along CP's routes in Canada and the United States.

Beginning in Montreal, Quebec, on November 25 and 26, 2017 respectively, two trains will make the festive journey, travelling through both the U.S. and Canada to bring holiday cheer to 171 communities along CP's network. Each event is completely free, with CP encouraging every attendee to open their cupboards or wallets to ease hunger needs in their community. Local food banks will be accepting donations at each stop to ensure those less fortunate can access adequate food this holiday season and year-round.

"The Holiday Train program is all about local food banks and food shelves and the critical role they play in our communities," said Keith Creel, CP's President and Chief Executive Officer. "People come for the beautifully-lit train and stay for the incredible show – all in the name of community. The holiday season is the best time of the year, and we look forward to bringing together thousands of Canadians and Americans this season for this incredibly important cause and a great time."

    Kelly Prescott is a third generation singer/songwriter, hailing from two musically renowned family lines. When her voice is blended with steel guitars and fiddles, country music lovers from way-back-when hear a kindred soul. When she spins the dial forward a few decades, it's clear she's part of a new generation that's making new sounds and big waves.

    "I've been blessed to be a part of the CP Holiday Train for many years, yet this never gets old. In fact, it becomes more magical every year. To see firsthand the difference this program makes in each community is nothing short of incredible.

  • Jim Cuddy

    ​Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo fame is back on the CP Holiday Train, this time touring on the U.S. Train with son Devin Cuddy. Jim's 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. Jim's success with Blue Rodeo and as a solo artist is widely attributed to his love of touring, his active connection to fans, and an unwavering commitment to pushing creative limits.

    Jim released his first solo album in 1998 and has received two JUNO Awards for his solo work. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2013.

  • Devin Cuddy

    ​As the son of one of Canada's most beloved singer/songwriters, Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, country rock has been the soundtrack to Devin's entire life. But from the moment Devin was drawn to playing music, he was determined to get as close as possible to the sources of all the sounds he loved, whether they were made by rock and roll's founding fathers, the Grand Ole Opry's honky tonk heroes, or Jelly Roll Morton and the kings of jazz.

    "Having participated in the CP Holiday Train in 2015, I'm even more excited to be a part of this year! Looking forward to seeing everyone out there and collecting some donations for a great cause!"
