Canadian Pacific Railway - employees 2013-2019

In the fiscal year of 2019, Canadian Pacific employed 13,103 people. The company makes 40 percent of its freight revenue from bulk freight.

Revenue pre- and post-pandemic outbreak

Like its employee numbers, Canadian Pacific has seen a steady growth in its annual revenue since 2016, generating its highest revenue this decade of almost 7.8 billion Canadian dollars in 2019. However, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, revenue in Q1 of 2020 reveal that the company has been hit by low demand for freight services – oil demand, for example, has been severely affected amid the crisis. The railway company has nevertheless seen record grain shipments during the first few months of 2020.

A glance at Union Pacific’s recent headcount

Canadian Pacific Railway’s major competitor – with a market value over twice the size of Canadian Pacific’s – Union Pacific has, unlike Canadian Pacific, seen a steady decline in employees since 2016. In 2019, the market leader reported its lowest employee headcount since 2013; this has in part been due to fluctuating freight revenue streams.
