Our Story

CPCS’s story traces back to the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railroad (CP) in the late 1800s. CP was one of the earliest, and arguably the largest public-private partnership (PPP) in global history. CP evolved to become a recognized leader in global transportation services, which included rail, shipping and air transportation businesses.

Recognizing the significant depth of expertise it had developed; CP established a consulting arm in 1969 - Canadian Pacific Consulting Services (CPCS), to advise governments and other transportation services providers around the world.  

In 1989, CPCS became independent of CP through a management buy-out and later merger with management consulting firm, Hickling Transcom. 

Today, CPCS is an independent, employee-owned management consulting firm specializing in transportation, power and public-private partnership infrastructure projects.
