Rail Safety Improvement Program

The RSIP is not accepting applications at this time.

Transport Canada’s Rail Safety Improvement Program (RSIP) provides funding for projects that improve infrastructure or propose research or new technologies to increase safety at grade crossings and along rail lines or that address or prevent the impact of climate change and extreme weather along rail lines. Projects that increase public confidence in Canada’s rail transportation system or education and awareness about rail safety issues are also funded. When an intake is open, applications are accepted from provinces, territories, municipalities, and local governments, road and transit authorities, crown corporations, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations (including academia), Indigenous groups, communities and organizations and individuals/private landowners to help improve rail safety.
