MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - April 23, 2007) - CN announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a second-quarter 2007 dividend on the Company's common shares outstanding.

For U.S. shareholders, CN is a "qualified foreign corporation" for U.S. federal income tax purposes and its dividends are therefore generally eligible for "qualified dividend" treatment.
