REGINA, Saskatchewan — Canadian National is naming its national employee training center in Winnipeg, Manitoba, after former President and Chief Executive Officer Claude Mongeau, the railroad announced this week.

Mongeau joined CN in 1994 where he served as chief financial officer for 11 years, and president and chief executive officer from 2010 until he stepped down for health reasons at the end of June 2016.

The CN Claude Mongeau national training center campus in Winnipeg provides railroad workers with hands-on training and safety resources. On-site instructors educate railroaders for jobs ranging from conductor to track maintainer and car mechanic to supervisor.

The site is equipped with locomotive, crane, and signals and communication simulators. Outdoors labs with rolling stock and other equipment also provide field training for employees.

The Winnipeg campus opened in 2014.
