The Canadian National Railway Company came into being on June 6, 1919 in order to consolidate a collection of scattered railways across the country that had fallen under Federal Government ownership, many of which had been bankrupted by the activities of the Great World War. Over the years, this collection of lines grew into one of the largest of railway companies on the continent. Below are links to the individual histories of railway lines that were either created by or ultimately came under the control of the Canadian National Railway that were constructed within the Province of Ontario.
