CP's history with the military dates back to its creation.  CP's President and driver of the last spike, Donald Smith (aka Lord Strathcona Mount Royal) personally financed over 500 officers and soldiers to deploy to South Africa to fight with the British in the Boer war. This band of men is now what known as the Lord Strathcona's Horse Regiment.

CP's efforts continued into WWI where out of the 11,340 CP employees who enlisted, two received the coveted Victoria Cross and 385 others were decorated for valor and distinguished service.  When the fighting was over 7,573 ex-CP employees were re-employed and an additional 13,112 veterans were employed.

During WWII people, resources, ingenuity and expertise were needed once again at home and overseas.  CP reorganized its entire shop system for the war. Angus Shops in Montreal was turned into a facility for building Valentine tanks and munitions. Calgary's Ogden Shops were dedicated to naval guns and Winnipeg's Weston Shops became the main locomotive shops for the system. In total, 21,787 CP employees enlisted in WWII, with 658 sacrificing their lives.

Today, CP participates in Canadian troop movements and field exercises, shipping army vehicles and equipment by rail to remote training grounds or in preparation for shipment overseas.
