The Canadian (French: Le Canadien) is a passenger train route operated by Via Rail Canada running from Toronto to Vancouver, with numerous intermediate stops including Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Jasper and Kamloops. The trip, which takes over three days, is the longest passenger train route in North America, and covers several distinct landscapes. It runs from Toronto's financial district, through the sprawling suburbs of the Greater Toronto area, passing Ontario's Lake Country and through the massive Canadian Shield, the open expanse of the prairies, across the Rocky Mountains, and into the lush Fraser Valley of British Colombia, before ending in the bustling Pacific city of Vancouver.
