More connections to keep growing.

Connecting Canada’s most-populated region with faster, greener, more frequent and more reliable passenger rail will help attract talent and generate innovation. HFR will make it easier to travel to major cities, freeing travellers from airport and highway congestion. It will also better connect those in rural and small urban communities to jobs, talent, cultural institutions and education.
