Not really. On Wednesdays, the train leaves Jasper a few hours before the eastbound Canadian arrives. The other 2 days of the week it runs are Friday and Sunday, and the eastbound Canadian goes through Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. So the best connection would be arriving on the Canadian on Saturday and leaving on the Skeena on Sunday.
The westbound Canadian goes through Jasper on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. It arrives after the Skeena leaves on Fridays and Sundays, so the best connection would be to arrive on the westbound Canadian on Tuesday leave on Wednesday's Skeena.
I can't help but think absolutely no thought was given to connections when determining this schedule.
