Community Engagement

Thank you to those who have participated in recent public consultation and engagement regarding the proposed Milton Logistics Hub, including the following:
  • June 2018 Community Benefits Engagement (June 11 – 29, 2018) – See Details
    • From June 11 – 29, 2018, CN asked for input on a short list of potential benefit ideas through a brief survey, available online and through community outreach in Halton Region.
  • Spring 2018 Community Benefits Roundtables
    • Three roundtable meetings were held in February and March 2018 to further refine a list of potential benefit ideas. Participants included local and provincial elected officials, educational institutions, residents’ associations, recreation and community associations, cultural associations, members of the local business community and residents.
  • Fall 2017 Public Consultation
    • Through five open houses and two small group meetings in Halton Region, members of the public had the opportunity to learn about elements of the Project, speak with project specialists, and ask questions or voice concerns. 
    • These events were part of a community consultation period CN held from September 18 to October 31, 2017. In addition to attending the events, members of the public were invited to learn more and provide input by reading the discussion guide, completing a feedback form online, or through a written submission by email or mail.
2018 consultation results and consideration of input
2017 consultation results and consideration of input:
Read the 2017 Consultation Summary Report , and  Appendices  summarizing the input received.
Read the 2017 Consultation Consideration Memo, demonstrating how we have considered your input.
We are continuing to refine mitigation measures and potential additional community benefits that the Project could provide. Read the latest  Winter/Spring 2018 Project Update to learn more.

CN has been operating safely in Milton for 100 years and we want to make sure we continue to be good neighbours.

We are committed to ongoing engagement with Aboriginal groups, local governments, and the community to continue to find ways to mitigate the potential effects of our proposed Project, including working to find pragmatic solutions and enhancing potential local benefits.

We have worked and are continuing to work hard to listen to the interests and concerns of local governments and the community, and will continue to consider that feedback.


 Community Partnerships

We are proud to be partnering with Wilfrid Laurier
University to support the Centre for Supply Chain
Management, playing a role in educating and training
people for well-paying jobs in the region’s fast-growing
community, and partnering on the annual World Class
Supply Chain Summit in Milton.


Co-op Program

We are also working on a co-op program to provide
experience and summer jobs for students at our
intermodal facilities, and recruiting Wilfrid Laurier
graduates in Logistics for jobs.
