CN has a proud history of providing to community organizations, causes and initiatives across its network. In 2018, CN donated nearly $1.1 million to Alberta based organizations. CN is pleased to announce that the trees that are decorating the moving celebrations will be donated to the city of Edmonton to create a CN legacy forest of mature trees.

“CN believes in making lasting changes in the communities where we operate,” said Sean Finn, executive vice-president corporate services and chief legal officer at CN. “The urban forest, will attest to CN’s 100-year presence in Edmonton and to the importance of CN’s contribution to the city. Edmonton is at the heart of CN’s Western Canadian operations and we couldn’t be prouder to leave a lasting legacy in the city.”

In 2018, CN innovated by creating the first of its CN Community Boards in Edmonton. The CN Community Boards that are being launched on the occasion of the CN 100 anniversary are comprised of community leaders and provide input on CN’s community investments in the regions where they are established. The CN Edmonton Community Board is chaired by Doug Goss, respected member of the community with extensive board involvement. The board’s success has led CN to establish many more across the country. “We are pleased that the CN Community Board model is being replicated across the company’s network,” explained Mr. Goss. “Having local community leaders and representatives from CN on the board ensures that the decisions and recommendations made by the CN Edmonton Community Board truly reflect the needs of the community.”

Other members of the CN Edmonton Community Board include: Hugh Bolton, board member of the University Hospital Foundation’s Board of Trustees; Sarah Chan, former Campaign Cabinet Co-Chair of United Way of the Alberta Capital Region; Sam Jenkins, co-founder, Punchcard Systems; Ashif Mawji, Venture Partner at Rising Tide; Dave Mowat former President and CEO of ATB Financial; Suromitra Sanatani,  board member of Canada Post, Edmonton International Airport, and United Way Alberta Capital Region; Angus Watt, Managing Director, Individual Investor Services at National Bank Financial, and mentor of the Angus Watt Advisory Group. CN representatives on the board include, Doug Ryhorchuk, Vice-President, Network Operations at CN; Carrie Ann Crozier, Senior Director of Network Supply Chain at CN and Butch Whiteman, CN retiree. The board is supported by Dawn Newton, executive director of the CN Edmonton Community Board.
