As required by the Government of Canada, Team CN has put in place a comprehensive, robust and focused action plan to meet the anticipated volume of grain expected to be moved in the 2018-19 crop year. The objective is clear. It is the effective, efficient and timely movement of grain throughout the coming crop year.

To develop its plan, CN collaborated with key stakeholders, including producers, seeking their views and input. The measures reflect extensive consultations with grain producers, grain-handling companies, customers and Government officials. The foundation for the measures is Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s projections for the 2018-19 crop year, which is anticipated to be comparable to the three-year average level, as well as similar to the previous two crop years.

We will update this grain plan on a regular basis as estimates of crop production evolve. We will also update the plan to reflect our performance to date and report on any significant events that may have temporarily impacted performance. We also intend to continue to consult the industry through the course of the crop year.
