History

The site has been home to a railway station since the 1930s. The first passenger station was completed by CNR in 1937.

The first CN station was demolished and gave way to two structures, a three storey building at 205 York Street (now home to the CN Credit Union) completed in 1963 and the 10 storey CN Tower Building at 197 York Street built in 1975. The latter building, an International style structure was closed in 2000 as CN staff dwindled and was imploded in 2007. The old credit union building was incorporated into the current station structure after 2007 and remaining site of the old station became a parking lot. The platform area from the previous stations were retained in the new station.
