“The CP Holiday Train is a program that our 13,000-strong CP family has immense pride in bringing to communities every year. Access to nutritious food is a basic necessity, and food bank usage is on the rise across North America. The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support.” - Keith Creel, CP's President and Chief Executive Officer.

The Holiday Train has now raised more than C$15.8 million and collected 4.5 million pounds of food since its inaugural journey back in 1999.

  • Alan Doyle and Beautiful Band

    Alan Doyle chalks up a lot of where is he right now to luck. But one listen to his latest album, "A Week at The Warehouse", makes it clear there's a lot more than luck at play. 

    This album, recorded live with Doyle's "Beautiful Band", is filled with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that bring the flavour of some of Doyle's favourite artists, from John Mellencamp to the Payolas.

  • Vishtèn

    Acadian powerhouse trio Vishtèn has been recognized worldwide as an ambassador of francophone culture. The Canadian band has dazzled audiences with its fiery blend of traditional French songs and original instrumentals that fuse Celtic and Acadian genres with a modern rock sensibilities and indie-folk influences.

    Their trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, octave mandolin, whistles, piano, bodhrán, jaw harp and percussive dance result in a tour de force of traditional and contemporary music.
