“Ontario is moving ahead with preliminary work to build a high-speed rail system between Toronto and Windsor. The first phase of this project will begin with service from Toronto to London, then expand with service from London to Windsor in the second phase of construction.”

Why the Toronto-Windsor corridor

The Toronto-Windsor corridor is a growing region that is currently home to more than 7 million people and 3.4 million jobs.

This region is an ideal candidate for high-speed rail because it’s:

  • a hub for leading start-ups, research institutions, and manufacturing and agricultural sectors
  • home to existing regional transit systems and Canada’s largest and busiest airport
  • growing faster than its current transportation network can accommodate

7 proposed station stops

The proposed high-speed rail system will include 7 stops, constructed in two phases:

Phase 1: Toronto → Pearson Airport/Malton → Guelph → Kitchener-Waterloo → London
Phase 2: London → Chatham → Windsor
