Community Involvement

Fundraising and Sponsorship Requests

VIA Rail Canada - A proud contributor

Please note: Currently, VIA Rail is only considering applications for events requesting train tickets (i.e. exchange of services, and not a financial contribution).**Requests must be submitted at least 90 days prior to the planned event(s).


At VIA, we believe we have a role to play in building a better world for future generations, and we strive to make a real difference in the communities we call home. Often, that difference is in the interest of the environment; other times, it is through other types of community service.

For example, VIA Rail and Youth Science Foundation Canada partnered to create EnviroExpo, a national competition in which students combine the disciplines of art and science to address today’s environmental challenges.
