TORONTO, June 28, 2017 /CNW/ - CN announced today it has been recognized by Interbrand Canada as one of the 150 companies, organizations and institutions that are the most iconic in Canada.
To showcase the influence and impact of Canadian brands in honour of Canada 150, Interbrand Canada today released "The Interbrand 150: Iconic Canadian Brands Report: Our Time to Grow."
The iconic brands report celebrates and honours all things Canadian, and considers why Canadians embrace these brands with such pride and affection.
"The award-winning CN logo developed by Allan Fleming depicts a strong, bold, forward-thinking company," said Luc Jobin, president and chief executive officer of CN. "Just as it did when it was designed in 1960, the CN logo remains a powerful symbol that represents our commitment to innovation and reflects the key role we play in fostering the prosperity of the communities, customers and markets we serve by moving goods safely and efficiently across North America."
"As we note a significant milestone in our country's history, we reflect on who we are, where we've come from, and what we stand for," said Carolyn Ray, Managing Director, Interbrand Canada. "But this is also an opportunity to consider the vital role that brands, and the people supporting them, play in our lives.
