This contest is over. Thank you for participating!

As each tie was laid with the building of the railway, the story of Canada was being written and family legacies of the first railroaders were beginning to take form. As Canada turns 150, we want to hear your railway legacy. Help us showcase the role the railway played in defining a nation of proud Canadians, communities and families. From stories of sacrifice, to bravery, to ingenuity, even romance, we want to hear it all.

And that’s not all… Authors of the two most compelling true short stories will win the experience of a lifetime:

A two-day, two-night, all-expense paid trip aboard the CP Canada 150 Train, with five-star hospitality from the staff of the Royal Canadian Pacific for you and a guest.

The best story of the week will also be awarded a CP Canada 150 Train merchandise prize pack.

Contest closes July 31, 2017.
