The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is a festive and philanthropic tradition that began in 1999. This annual holiday-themed train, adorned with thousands of twinkling lights and holiday decorations, travels across Canada and the northern United States. Its primary mission is to raise awareness about hunger and support local food banks in the communities it visits.

Over the years, the Holiday Train has featured live musical performances by well-known artists, spreading cheer and goodwill to onlookers and those in need.
