If you would like to film on our property, we will make every effort to accommodate your request. Note that many of the stations from which we operate are not owned by VIA Rail, in which case, permission to film must be sought from the property owner. Note that regardless of the train station owner, VIA Rail’s safety rules must still be followed when filming.

We understand that your request may be time sensitive, and we do our best to respond to all requests in a timely manner, while respecting the needs of our passengers and our employees. It is best to contact us a minimum of 2 weeks prior to your desired filming date.

VIA Rail contributes to the promotion of events, fundraisers and fundraising activities within the many communities it serves across the country.

At VIA Rail, we’re helping shape the future of mobility. We hope to become a smarter way to move people by making cities and communities more accessible, connected and sustainable. We play an important role in Canada’s socioeconomic development, linking more than 400 communities from coast to coast, providing essential transportation services to rural communities and employing thousands of Canadians throughout the country.

As part of our commercial activities, we partner with the communities we serve in a way that promotes sustainable development and that matters to all Canadians. Therefore, we responsibly support community projects, events, fundraising campaigns and activities that further our social and community engagement and promote our strategic pillars and services.

Since our founding, we have proudly carried on this tradition; leading Canadians toward a more sustainable future, and helping them love the way they travel.
