Modernization of our Toronto and Montréal Maintenance Centres


A key component of our modernization plan

The modernization of our Toronto and Montréal maintenance facilities is an integral part of our Fleet Replacement Program in the Corridor. While continuing to maintain and service the existing fleet, these centres will be renovated and upgraded to service our 32 new trains. The Toronto and Montréal Maintenance Centres and their employees are key players in ensuring the reliability of the new fleet.

The projects in summary

Investing in the future

The modernization of VIA Rail’s Toronto and Montreal Maintenance Centers are all part of the funding for VIA Rail’s New Fleet provided in the 2018 federal budget, which represents an investment of over a billion dollars.

From 2023 to 2026

The project is currently in the preliminary phase. Construction activities begin in the spring of 2023, with an anticipated completion date of 2026.

Scope of work

The scope of work for the projects includes, but is not limited to, building and upgrading facility infrastructure (architectural, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and communications engineering systems) as well as supplying and installing train set maintenance equipment to support the new and existing fleets.
