CN named one of Montreal’s top employers

MONTREAL —CN has been recognized as one of Montreal’s Top Employers for 2021 by Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the seventh consecutive year.

“I am pleased that CN has once again been named to this prestigious list, especially as it comes following a year of unprecedented challenges and changes,” said Dorothea Klein, senior vice-president and chief human resources officer at CN. “Railroaders play an essential role in the economy every day and this award belongs to all of them. Together, we will continue to build on the elements that make us a top employer while continuing to foster an inclusive, engaging and diverse environment for everyone.”

The Montreal Metropolitan region is home to a large portion of the Company’s workforce. More than 3,000 of its employees are located in the area, either working in functions based in its historical downtown headquarters or in one of its many operating terminals in the region.

Montreal’s Top Employers honours local employers who provide excellent work conditions and benefits to their employees. This year’s winners were announced on February 9, 2021 in a commemorative magazine published in the Montreal Gazette.

Reasons why CN was chosen as a winner include the employee and pensioner-run Community Fund, which has raised more than $19.1 million over 10 years for Canadian charities, as well as the CN Railroaders in the Community program, which provides grants to the non-profit organizations its employees volunteer for.
