Canadian Pacific Holiday Train | From coast to coast for the homeless


It’s an annual tradition. For the 18th year, The Canadian Pacific’s annual Holiday Train will travel across Canada and the northern United States to raise money, food and awareness for food banks and hunger issues while hosting free concerts along the way.

It is a beautiful gesture. The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train creates the ultimate Christmas feeling by traveling around during the holidays and raise awareness for the homeless. The train is decorated with bells, a lot of flashing lights and a part of the train is able to transform into a stage for concerts. Every year, thousands of spectators are waiting for the train along the way or at the various stations.

Capture the spirit

Since the tradition began in 1999, the train has collected $ 9 million dollars and four million pounds of food for local food banks. Fans of the Holiday Train are encouraged to take photos capturing the train in various cities and landscapes and entering the “Capture the Spirit” photo contest on Facebook for a chance to win an exclusive ride on next year’s train.
