Program to Enhance Rail Safety Engagement

Note: We are now accepting applications for funding under the Program to Enhance Rail Safety Engagement until February 16th, 2023 (11:59 PM PST).

Transport Canada's Program to Enhance Rail Safety Engagement provides funding to increase capacity for Indigenous and local communities, organizations, and entities to engage with Transport Canada regarding the rail transportation system.

This program helps Indigenous and local communities participate in developing and improving Canada's rail transportation system through consulting, engaging, collaborating, participating, researching, or gathering community views.

Information Sessions will be held on January 17th and 25th, 2023 at 10:00 am (French) and 11:00am (English) PST. Please send an email at to register to one of the sessions.

NOTE: You can apply for funding to support short-term participation in event-driven engagement activities like meetings or discussion forums through our Community Participation Funding Program – Rail Safety Component.
