About the CRHA

Established in 1932, the Canadian Railway Historical Association (CRHA) is the most senior Canadian railway enthusiast organization devoted to preserving and interpreting Canada’s railway heritage, which its founders and members have safeguarded from coast to coast.

Today, Exporail, the Canadian Railway Museum, owned and operated by the CRHA, figures among the most important railway museums in the world.

Exporail’s Archive Centre—recognized by the Province of Quebec as an Accredited Private Archive Service in 2008—is testimony to the work accomplished by the CRHA’s volunteers and the Association’s interest in sharing this work with the general public and researchers alike.

Today, the CRHA remains a non-profit volunteer organization that counts close to 1,000 members and eleven Divisions throughout Canada.
