The Canadian, owned and operated by VIA Rail Canada, a Canadian Federal Crown Corporation, has been renovated to its stainless steel exterior and art-deco style of the 1950s, offering a nostalgic travel experience. From the vantage point of the private domed Skyline car, your enjoyment of the scenery along your travels is truly enhanced.

Enjoy your trip aboard VIA Rail in the upgraded Sleeper Plus, which includes the following:

Pre-boarding and priority baggage handling
24-hour complimentary tea/coffee service
Private bedroom aboard the sleeping car
Basic, functional sleeping quarters
Exclusive access to the famed observation domes of the Skyline cars, which also have a relaxing lounge area. Each Skyline car is the exclusive domain of guests from three sleeping cars.
Excellent meals in the dining car
Special touches including a shower kit (soap, shampoo, and towels), tourist literature, included check-in of your baggage
Courteous staff attentive to your every need


Baggage
When boarding, please limit yourself to one item of hand luggage to carry into the cars. Please check all baggage that you will not need during the three night journey. Don’t forget to keep any medication with you.

Passengers With Special Needs
None of the stations have platforms level with rail car doors. Passengers in wheelchairs can be boarded with the help of VIA Rail personnel. Travelers who are unable to travel between cars may have their meals served at their seats by VIA Rail personnel.

Smoking
There is a strict no-smoking policy on board VIA Rail trains.

Gratuities for Train Personnel
We are sure you will agree that tipping is a personal matter and should be commensurate with services provided. The following are recommended guidelines:

Breakfast CAD $1.50 per person per day

Dinner CAD $4.00 per person per day

Meals
All meals are included while on board VIA Rail’s The Canadian. All meals are ordered from a menu and served at the table. All tables seat 4 people. Dress up or down as you wish. Sleeper Plus guests find that the constantly changing panoramas from the Skyline car create a special mood all their own, there are three sittings for each meal, not just dinner.  First seating for breakfast means first choice seating for the other two meals of the day. Generally, if you are assigned a later dinner seating one evening, you get the first seating the next evening. Each meal, prepared by a chef exclusively for Sleeper Touring Class passengers, features a Canadian-inspired menu — soups and salads, fresh bread, cold plates, and excellent hot entrees, topped off by delicious desserts. Your meals include most non-alcoholic beverages.
On-train personnel will do their best to fill requests for vegetarian, kosher, low-sodium, or low-fat meals. Please let Vantage know about any special dietary requests at the time of booking to allow us enough time to transmit your request. VIA Rail does not guarantee that its meals are free of all allergenic products.
