CN will be conducting site preparation activities including site fencing in November and December 2021. This will include surveying and placement of stakes/demarcation materials among other preparation activities for site safety. More significant project construction is anticipated to begin in 2022.

The Milton Logistics Hub was approved by the federal government on January 21, 2021, following an extensive environmental assessment under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012. The 325 conditions from the Decision Statement will be implemented in addition to the other number of commitments CN made throughout the environmental review process.

Construction of the Project is expected to generate 375 jobs over the two-year construction period. For information about employment opportunities with CN, please visit CN’s recruitment webpage.
