A review of the station project

Economic benefit to the community

The train station is now an asset to the community instead of surplus liability to CNR. The partnerships created by the project injected funds into the community that would not otherwise have been available. The Conservancy found support and created bonds with the federal Millennium Bureau, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, GO Transit, the Town of Markham, Emery Investments, Shell Canada, and the Ontario Government through the Ontario Heritage Foundation's Challenge Fund.

Had we not pursued this effort, the station would have been demolished. According to GO Transit, the commuter facility would most likely have been shut down and the land sold as new stations open elsewhere. As a result of the project, the people of Markham own a lovely and valuable building in the heart of the Village of Markham.
