Via Rail Canada

As Canada's national rail passenger service, which operates intercity, regional and transcontinental trains, linking 450 communities across its 12,500-kilometre route network, VIA Rail is delighted to be one of the partners hosting the 2017 STARTS NOW conferences!

Trains helped to build and grow our country, and VIA Rail has been a part of this history, connecting people across Canada for almost 40 years. As part of the very fabric of Canada, VIA Rail is proud to participate in this national tour, along with our partners CBC/Radio-Canada and Community Foundations of Canada, to help inspire and develop ideas for the celebration of 150 years of Canada and its future.
