Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (TSX: CP)(NYSE: CP) announced today that its wholly- owned subsidiary, Canadian Pacific Railway Company, is commencing an offering of senior unsecured notes in the United States to fund a voluntary prepayment in 2011 to the company’s Canadian defined benefit pension plan.

CP believes that the transactions will be a tax efficient means for the company to reduce the volatility in defined benefit pension plan funding requirements and provide greater flexibility to direct future cash from operations to infrastructure investments. The net impact of the debt offering and the voluntary prepayment of the pension contribution is expected to be accretive to earnings.

CP intends to access debt markets, other than the U.S. public market, to fund additional voluntary prepayments of future contributions to its Canadian defined benefit pension plan. Any additional debt offerings will depend on capital market conditions and may occur at any time. There is no assurance that any additional debt offerings will be completed.

Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that registration statement and other documents the issuer has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the issuer and this offering.

Morgan Securities LLC collect at 1-212-834-4533.
