The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and the Railway Association of Canada (RAC) recognize that it is in Canada’s economic interest to develop appropriate relationships between railways and communities, to promote proper planning and communication practices and offer dispute resolution mechanisms for resolving unanticipated problems.

Our goal with this website is to provide the public with current resources and reference information on rail infrastructure and operations, municipal land planning guidelines, dispute resolution models and government regulations. We believe that sourcing information easily can improve the dialogue between railways and municipalities and help ensure that both parties continue to attain common goals that benefit each other and the country as a whole.
