Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) members are entitled to a 5% discount every time they travel with VIA Rail Canada. This corporate discount applies to all destinations, and all fare categories, with the exception of the Escape fare. It also applies to the different promotions VIA Rail offers throughout the year. For example, when there is a 50% off seat sale, members of the CIC, the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) and the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT) receive 55% off.
Moreover, this discount applies to leisure travels - members can have up to 3 people (friends, family, colleagues) travelling with them who can also benefit from the discount.
To make sure you get the discount every time you travel, simply visit www.viarail.ca and create a profile. In your profile, you will be asked to select a discount type. Select ''corporate rate'' and enter our six digit corporate number: 811130. Please note that you will need to carry a copy of your 2018 membership receipt on board so that VIA staff can verify that you are a current member.

Please make sure you use the discount every time you travel with VIA Rail. The more our discount code is used the higher our discount will become.
