CN is Proud to be Recognized as a Top Employer Year After Year
Not only to do these notable distinctions reaffirm our efforts to be a leading company, community partner and employer, but they energize us to keep on pushing forward to make CN even better.


Our People Make the Difference
From the generations of railroading families who helped build our great legacy, to the new employees who join our ranks every year and continue to ensure a strong, bright future for CN, we all make up the fabric of a diverse and evolving workforce.

“There is a great deal of excitement and energy that we are creating the railway of the future, and people want to be part of it.”

“I love what I do at CN. Colleagues become friends and I want them to stay safe. They know if I am not in the field, I’m only a phone call away.”

“I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts. Even though I don`t have a typical IT background, I discovered I can build my career at CN.”

Be Part of Something that Matters
CN transports 300 million tonnes of goods annually, touching the lives of millions of people every day. We’re not just a railroad; we’re an economic backbone and a leading North American transportation and logistics company.
Beyond a Railroad



Working with a broad range of strengths, perspectives and experiences makes us better. It helps us attract and retain qualified talent, and it fosters innovation by bringing the best solutions to the table. Bring your unique voice to our mix of talented employees and help us realize even greater achievements.




Since 2011, through simple, concrete actions, employees in yards and offices across the company have been helping further embed environmental sustainability into our culture. Because of our vast network and operations across North America, CN also extends EcoConnexions externally to the municipalities along its corridor.

Giving Back

Our Railroaders in the Community program is one of the many ways CN’s long and proud history of community involvement lives on year after year. Employees dedicate thousands of hours of their own time every year to the charitable organizations that are near and dear to them.


Our Employee Experience
Over and above the competitive salaries, retirement savings plans and medical benefits we offer, our holistic approach to health reflects our commitment to the physical, mental, financial and professional well being of our railroaders and, by extension, their families.

At CN you’ll have more than just a job; we’ll help you build a stable, rewarding career.
