City of North Vancouver Receives Unique Donations from CN Rail

August 21, 2019

As the City of North Vancouver commemorates CN Rail’s 100th anniversary, it’s also the grateful recipient of two significant community donations from CN.

As part of CN’s anniversary celebrations across the country, it has gifted the City of North Vancouver with a $100,000 donation to the new North Vancouver Museum and Archives (NVMA), opening in the fall of 2020 at the City’s waterfront. The funding from CN will support the museum’s planned ‘Connections Exhibit’ using artifacts and interactive content to explore connections through transportation networks.

Another CN donation to the City in celebration of its 100th anniversary, is the delivery of 100 trees to be planted in Moodyville Park, creating a ‘CN 100’ legacy forest. The trees will be a key feature of the park and will be planted in time for the City’s upcoming grand opening of Moodyville Park later this fall when its revitalization is complete.

“The City congratulates CN on its 100th anniversary, and is grateful for its role in our community and ongoing support”, says Mayor Linda Buchanan. “We’re so pleased to receive the generous financial contribution towards our new North Vancouver Museum and Archives which is opening soon at our waterfront. And the gift of 100 trees to our City is a meaningful acknowledgement of our commitment to nature in our community and a living legacy that all of our residents will enjoy for decades to come.”

CN’s anniversary celebration features an exhibit ‘CN 100: A Moving Celebration’ at the PNE in until Sunday, August 25th. The exhibit celebrates the people, the trains and the spirit that helped build Canada.
