Uniting Canadians from coast to coast, the Canadian Pacific Railway was founded in 1881 to link Canada’s populated centres with the vast potential of its relatively unpopulated West. Shaping the nation, the railway helped build the foundation that would eventually turn Canada into the diverse country that it is today.
