CN has published its 2021-2022 winter plan to explain how its employees and equipment will be prepared to reduce the impact of harsh weather conditions for customers, while ensuring the safety and effectiveness of its operations.

The plan, which is required by provisions of the Canada Transportation Act, was developed in consultation and collaboration with customers and stakeholders, CN officials said in the press release.

"CN's goal is to lead as the safest and most innovative railway in North America. We adopt best practices, cutting-edge technology and make key investments in infrastructure and equipment. With this approach we safely move more goods, for the benefit of our customers and the North-American economy," said CN President and Chief Executive Officer JJ Ruest.

The plan outlines the challenges the Class I faces operating in Canadian winters, and sets out the actions and innovations the railroad has implemented to maintain an acceptable level of operations during such conditions.
