The Milton Logistics Hub CN is proposing to build and operate a new intermodal hub in Milton, Ontario – a critical investment in Canada’s economy. The Project will help meet the growing demand for goods in Southern Ontario, and will generate new supply chain efficiencies within Canada, Ontario and the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA).

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 and health products – have been handled by CN and transported in containers.

The independent joint Review Panel agreed there is a need for additional intermodal facility capacity in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.


The resilience and fluidity of Canada’s supply chains is more important than ever. Private sector investments, like CN’s Milton Logistics Hub, will help stabilize our economy and provide jobs.


CN is proud of its partnerships with local organizations such as the Milton District Hospital Foundation, the Halton Learning Foundation, and Wilfrid Laurier University. We are also working with local government and community partners to explore potential additional benefits with the Project.


The Review Panel found that the Project can play a role in reducing GHGs and other air emissions at a regional or greater level, and that direct Project effects are relatively small and need to be understood in the context of the rapidly developing area. CN is committed to addressing the Panel’s recommendations for mitigating potential effects of the Milton Logistics Hub.

  • 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.
