Engaging with Communities on Safety


Our Corporate Services staff members play an integral role in keeping CN connected to the communities in which we operate. Working with our Dangerous Goods team and other colleagues, Corporate Services members, led by our community affairs staff and CN Police, have an ongoing community engagement program reaching municipal officials and local emergency responders along CN’s North American rail network.

Through this program, CN representatives regularly share information on crossing safety, corridor risk assessments, proximity guidelines, dangerous goods traffic, and emergency response training opportunities. CN Police officers work with communities to reduce grade crossing and trespassing incidents across our network through targeted enforcement and education initiatives. Our outreach program reaches hundreds of communities every year.
