CN is increasing its operations in Western Canada with two significant export supply chain projects: The AltaGas Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal, and The Vista Mining Complex. Both new projects aim to maximize the use of rail into the Port of Prince Rupert. The AltaGas Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal has been receiving propane since mid-April and will provide access to markets in Asia for the propane derived from the natural gas industry based in BC and Alberta. The Vista Mining Complex is a new surface mine operation expected to employ in excess of 350 people full-time. With committed rail and terminal capacity, the project is focused on the serving the growing demand for thermal coal in the Asian markets.
