It starts with knowing and following the rules

We’re committed to protecting our people, the communities in which we operate, the environment and our customers' goods.

For 11 consecutive years, CP has had the lowest train accident frequency of any Class 1 North American railway. We’re committed to protecting our people, our communities, our environment and our customers' goods. It starts with knowing and following the rules. We are increasing safety inspections, carrying out more internal awareness campaigns and requiring our Operations Managers to pass examinations on operating rules and regulations, with a 90% or higher grade.

From our CP Police Service who work closely with communities to promote rail safety and infrastructure security, to our HazMat and emergency response training and outreach, to providing public education on crossing safety, your safety isn’t just a priority – it’s fundamental to who we are and what we do.
