The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train returns to Toronto to close out Canada 150 this November.

Since its first tour in 1999, the train has raised more than $13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the U.S.
For many, the holiday season doesn’t officially begin until the illumination of Toronto’s famous Christmas Tree in Nathan Phillips Square. This special event takes place every year at the Cavalcade of Lights. Featuring performances by some of Canada’s top musical talent, a brilliant fireworks show and outdoor skating party under the glow of more than half a million lights, this is a celebration that will warm the hearts of even the frostiest of attendees. Don’t worry if you miss the kick-off event, the lights are ablaze every night for weeks after.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
