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.

As an example, CN has heard concerns from the community about air quality, and we will be encouraging the contractor to use machinery with the most efficient (Tier 4) engines or zero-emissions equipment. At a minimum, contractors are required to use Tier 3 engines on site to minimize air emissions – a standard not seen on any project in Halton region today.

CN has also invested in 50 Canadian-made electric trucks to be used in urban environments. This pilot initiative, developed in response to community feedback on the Milton Logistics Hub, will be expanded if it proves to be successful.

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.
