Community Support

Every year we make a commitment to assist local not-for-profit groups that simply need a helping hand. These small-scale community partnerships ensure that grassroots initiatives, many which are unique to their region, continue to bring vibrancy to the community.

Brookfield Rail’s support also goes beyond the funding we provide to our communities. We also make a valuable contribution through our expertise in the rail industry, whether it is knowledge, skills equipment, land use or infrastructure.

Below are just some examples of Brookfield Rail’s support for the community:
