As a CCIC member organization, employees can access a members-only discount code on travel with Via Rail. CCIC has partnered with Via Rail to encourage our members to travel by rail to our events, but also in your everyday travel needs. This is just one benefit to being a member of CCIC, among the many others that can be found here. 


Why use the CCIC discount code?  

Environmentally-friendly travel: The train is more sustainable than flying or driving, in terms of CO2 emissions, energy consumption, use of space, and even noise levels. CCIC is making a commitment to reducing our environmental impact, and helping members to do the same. 

The collective benefit: The discount rate will increase as more members use the code, so travel will become cheaper for all members – a collective benefit for the sector! 

Friends and family discount: Employees of CCIC members can also treat friends and family to the same discount when booking 3 additional tickets at the same time – meaning more savings and less impact on the environment. 


How does it work? 

Any employee of a CCIC member organization can make a reservation online, or at a Via Rail station using the CCIC discount code when booking any fare class*

Please note that when boarding or booking a ticket in person, the following ID may be required: 

  • business card 
  • photo ID 
  • A letter provided by CCIC   

*with the exception of Escape fare and Prestige Sleeper Class. You should still input the code when booking these fares in order that each purchase be tracked and potentially lead to a higher discount for all members. 



Can I use the code for personal travel? 

Yes! You can also include up to three (3) additional passengers, providing they are travelling with you (same train and same date).
