​We plan to strengthen communities all over North America.

Employee Giving

​CP's Giving Engine

As railroaders, we believe in giving back to the communities in which we live, work and play. CP’s Giving Engine is an internal website that gives each of us a chance to sit in the engineer’s chair. When we donate to a registered charity of our choice, CP matches 50% of the contribution, up to $1,500/year (for non-political and non-religious organizations). As part of the CP Has Heart program, when we give to CP's primary cardiac partners (Heart and Stroke Foundation and the American Heart Association) 100% of the donation is matched.

​Volunteerism

​We encourage everyone to volunteer and make a difference in our communities. Collectively, CP employees give hundreds of hours of our time to charities and not-for-profit organizations.​
