CN is a true backbone of the economy, dedicated to building stronger and safer communities.
The town of Milton means a great deal to us, and always will.
In addition to the economic, environmental and social benefits that the proposed Milton Logistics Hub would provide, CN is exploring ideas for potential additional benefits in Milton and Halton Region.
The proposed Project is expected to create approximately 130 direct, on-site jobs and 1,000 direct and indirect jobs, generate up to $230 million in municipal revenues over the next 20 years, improve Canada’s access to international markets, and make local businesses to be more competitive in the global market.
We are partnering with Wilfrid Laurier University to play a key role in educating and training people for well-paying jobs in supply chain management. We are also working with local government and community partners to explore the possibility of building a bike path, connecting new and existing trails in the area.
We believe it is important that we not just mitigate potential effects of the Milton Logistics Hub – where possible, we want to help people lead healthier lives and help make the environment in the area even better.
Why is the Project needed?
CN moves more than $250 billion worth of goods across North America every year. Chances are most of your necessities – including personal electronics, food products, household goods, car parts and health products – have been handled by CN and transported in containers.
he GTHA is Canada’s largest population area and the fastest-growing region in the country. The population of the GTHA is expected to increase from 6.6 million to 10 million by 2041, and as the population grows, so does the need for household goods coming into and going out of the region. The proposed Project would help to provide much-needed infrastructure to facilitate the movement of goods through the region and across North America.
CN will invest $250 million to build and operate the Milton Logistics Hub, key to Canada’s economic growth in North America and globally, connecting Canada and the GTHA with international markets.
As the population of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) grows toward a projected 10 million by 2041, increasing gridlock is costing Ontario's economy billions of dollars annually and decreasing quality of life for residents. The province requires critical transportation infrastructure to ensure the safe, efficient, and environmentally-responsible movement of goods.
We believe the CN Milton Logistics Hub is an important part of the solution, as does the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Toronto Region Board of Trade, all four Chambers of Commerce in Halton Region, and business organizations, ports, and companies across the country.
