Win $5,000 for your favourite charity!
On top of the grant CN already gives your charity or youth sports team in recognition of your valuable volunteer work, you could win an additional $5,000 for your charitable organization. How far can the money go? Just ask some of our previous winners who helped their charities in inspiring ways.
One prize of $5,000 will be drawn each in CN Western Region, CN Eastern Region and CN Southern Region for employees and in each Region for CN retirees.
If you volunteer a minimum of 40 hours with a community-based, charitable organization or youth sports team and qualify for a CN employee volunteer grant or CN retiree grant between January 1, 2015 and November 30, 2015, you will be automatically entered in a draw in your region to win a prize of $5,000 for that charity or youth sports team. Winners will be contacted in December 2015.
