ABOUT CORINA MOORE
As Ontario Northland’s President and CEO, Corina has shaped a resilient organization that is focused on delivering best-in-class transportation throughout Ontario.
Recognized as an inspirational leader and catalyst for change, Corina has shifted the business lines of Ontario Northland to be data-driven, customer-focused, lean, and strategic. She has cultivated a team that is focused on building integrated and impactful transportation services, including rail freight, passenger rail, motor coach transportation, rail repair/remanufacturing services and a boutique hotel.

Corina passionately and tirelessly promotes the benefits of an integrated and seamless transportation network that connects rural Ontario to major centres across North America, which in turn has positive impacts on economic development, tourism, road safety, the environment, and quality of life.
