Win $5,000 for your favourite charity!

On top of the grant CN already gives your charity or youth sports team in recognition of your valuable volunteer work, you could win an additional $5,000 for your charitable organization. That’s enough to purchase 100 bags of groceries for a food bank, 200 dog beds for an animal shelter or 500 new toys for a children’s hospital! The possibilities are endless.

One prize of $5,000 will be drawn each in CN Western Region, CN Eastern Region and CN Southern Region.

Here’s How:

If you volunteer a minimum of 40 hours with a community-based, charitable organization or youth sports team and qualify for a CN employee volunteer grant between January 1, 2014 and November 30, 2014, you will be automatically entered in a draw in your region to win a prize of $5,000 for that charity or youth sports team.

Winners will be contacted in December 2014.

About The Program

When our fellow railroaders give back to the community, it makes us proud. And it motivates us to be the best we can possibly be. If there was anything that deserves recognition, it’s these acts of kindness.

The CN Railroaders in the Community program recognizes the efforts of our employees and retirees by providing grants to the community-based charitable organizations they choose to support through their volunteer efforts.

The program includes the following:

How it works

Are you eligible for a CN Railroaders in the Community grant?

Yes, if:

  • You are an eligible CN employee, a family member or a retired employee who volunteers at least 40 hours at an eligible charitable organization from January 1 to November 30 within a calendar year.
  • You are participating in a recognized and/or sanctioned fundraising initiative.

Your volunteer work helps your community and CN's contribution magnifies your efforts with a donation. It's a win-win situation for everybody.
