TRAINS/TRUCKS/SHIPS/PLANES/HOTELS/TELECOMMUNICATIONS BY LAND
BY AIR
"The Canadian", all-stainless-steel scenic-dome
transcontinental streamliner crosses Canada daily
between Toronto-Vancouver and Montreal-Vancouver. The anti-glare glass-enclosed observation
domes capture unequalled views of the spectacular Canadian Rockies, limitless prairies, rugged
north shore of Lake Superior, bush, mining and
placid farm lands of Ontario and Quebec and
the   pastoral   coast   plains   of   British   Columbia.
There's a white "Empress" sailing every week in the season
between Montreal and Europe. The Canadian Pacific
"inland route" gives you 1,000 miles of the scenic St.
Lawrence River, nearly 300 sheltered miles in British waters.
Winter cruises by "White Empresses" from New York to the
Mediterranean and the West Indies and from the United
Kingdom to Mediterranean and North African waters and
to the West Indies.
Passenger, express and air cargo service across
Canada and internationally to four continents is
flown by Super DC-8 jet Empresses and jet-prop
"Britannias". They serve Hawaii, the South Pacific,
the Orient, Mexico and South America, northern
Europe via the Polar Route and Lisbon, Madrid,
Rome by the sunny southern route. Fly CPA for excellent service and unexcelled passenger comfort.

11 YEARS OF GROWTH
Achievement that parallels the
growth of Canada is recorded by
the history of the Canadian Pacific.
In the seventy-seven years since
Canada's first transcontinental railway was completed, in 1885, the
4,000 miles of track that linked
Canada from sea to sea has become
16,902 miles.
Across this vast network in
Canada, and connecting lines in
the United States, freight trains
speed the products of mine, mill,
factory  and  farm.
At sea a proud fleet of "White
Empresses" and fast "Beaver" cargo
ships links Canada and Europe,
chartered cargo vessels ply the St.
Lawrence Seaway; Canadian Pacific
aircraft cross the Polar regions, the
equator and the International Date
Line, and a chain of famous hotels
from sea to sea serve an ever-
expanding Canada.
Canadian Pacific, justifying the
vision of its pioneers, has grown
into the world's most complete
transportation system — 85,000
route miles serving five continents
by land, sea and air. SERVICES
