Notes:
Under the Transportation Modernization Act, the data are reported by rail carriers to Transport Canada and then disseminated on the Statistics Canada website. See Weekly Rail Performance Indicators, Transport Canada for an explanation of the different methods railways use to calculate these metrics. Readers should use caution in comparing railways between each other prior to having read the methodology as data between railways is not always perfectly comparable.
