Commemorating 100 Years

Celebrating CN's past, present and future

A Century of Stories

This year marks CN’s 100th anniversary and we have much to celebrate.

We have one hundred years of stories behind our journey as North America's railroad. Join us in looking back at how far we've come and imagining what lies ahead.

For CN’s 100th birthday, we invite you to discover, explore and celebrate the people, places and events that helped make us what we are.

A Moving Celebration!
To commemorate this very special milestone, we have a number of events planned to honour our rich railroading history and future. Starting in April, our CN100 themed containers will stop in cities across North America inviting CN’s extended family and the general public to join our celebration. Called “A Moving Celebration,” the tour will have something for everyone. There will be history to discover, shows to watch, music to listen to, local food to eat, and activities and workshops to participate in.

Looking Back and Moving Forward

CN’s holds a unique place in history: the unforgettable people, iconic landscapes and exciting innovations have all marked our great railroad through time. This centennial year is a time for the entire CN extended family — employees, pensioners, customers and the communities we touch from coast to coast to coast — to come together and bring to life the stories that have made CN what it is today.

Thank you for being a part of CN100.
