Diversity in the workforce


​When you work with us, you join a team of railroaders from all walks of life with all kinds of skills. We value that.​​​

Having a skilled and diverse workforce is a longstanding goal at CP as we cultivate the best team of railroaders in the industry. To support our vision, we continue to implement programs and initiatives that include work experience programs for immigrants, sponsorships and partnerships with historically black schools and Indigenous-based groups, and accommodating applicants and employees with disabilities.

Immigrant Work Experience programs

2018 Diversity Outreach StrategyCP has a long-standing relationship with several associations and organizations that attract, recruit and support skilled immigrants. Partnerships including the Centre for Newcomers and the Bow Valley College Corporate Readiness Program provide a win-win opportunity -- new Canadians gain work experience and our employees build their cross-cultural skills and awareness.

Indigenous Relations

As governments continue to reconcile past decisions to build a more positive present and future with Indigenous communities, CP continues to collaborate with Indigenous groups to better understand their cultures, and develop more meaningful relationships.

We partner with organizations such as Aboriginal Link, Community Futures, Rupertsland Institute, and Winnipeg's Canadian Aboriginal Human Resources Association to build positive relationships and to create targeted outreach programs and employment opportunities.
