Grain Performance for 2018-19 crop year

Working in close collaboration with Canadian government officials, CP has developed a system that allows for open and transparent sharing of information to government on its grain movements. 

In addition to the information being shared with Transport Canada, CP voluntarily publishes a weekly supply chain scorecard. The scorecard outlines CP's performance for the previous grain week and includes, when necessary, detailed information on any internal or external factors affecting grain movement. The scorecard includes movements of Western Canadian grain and grain products consistent with those required by the minimum mandate legislation of 2013-14, as well as movements of soybeans and other non-regulated principal field crops.
