Milton Logistics Hub Receives CTA Approval

CN was pleased to receive the decision of the Canadian Transportation Agency respecting the proposed Milton Logistics Hub. The decision is lengthy and CN is reviewing it carefully.

It follows the extensive environmental review process, which was completed on January 21, 2021 when the federal Minister of Environment issued a decision statement with 325 conditions designed to protect the community and the environment. CN is committed to continued engagement with indigenous groups, communities and interested parties as we move forward with the project, including with the establishment of a Community Consultation Committee.

The Milton Logistics Hub will be an important link in the North American supply chain. Locally, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) is growing rapidly, and the approved project is needed to handle the growing demand for household goods, consumer products, and other necessities of day to day life in one of Canada’s fastest growing regions.

CN will be providing more details on next steps in the near future, including the nature and timing of early site preparation and subsequent construction activities.
