2023 - WE ARE HERE

On February 17, 2023, The Government of Canada launched a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). From here, it will identify up to three qualified bidders, invite them to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP), and then select a partner to co-develop and optimize the project.


On December 15, the Minister of Transport announced the establishment of the VIA Rail Subsidiary—VIA HFR to support High Frequency Rail and appointed three founding members to its Board of Directors. Earlier in the fall the HFR Team appointed three professionals to enhance the expertise available to plan the HFR project.
