"Remembrance Day is a yearly memorial day that is observed in many Commonwealth countries, including Canada, to remember those who died in military service, and honour those who served in wartime. It is observed across Canada each year on 11 November — the anniversary of the Armistice agreement of 1918 that ended the First World War". (The Canadian Encyclopedia)

Centennial College has a proud annual tradition of marking Remembrance Day. Each November 11, Centennial students and staff have organized and attended meaningful ceremonies at their own home campuses in honour of the Canadian men and women in uniform who fought and died for our freedom.
This November 11, we'll continue marking Remembrance Day with a live broadcast presentation that will encompass all campuses. The ceremony begins at 10.15 a. m., and runs for approximately an hour. This unified event will be broadcasted from the Story Arts Centre, with the ceremony held outdoors in the courtyard in limited capacity, weather permitting. In case of rain, it will move indoors.
Our 2021 service will be hosted by Malcolm Kelly, and has been created with the assistance of the Broadcast and Film program at Centennial, and staff at the other four campuses.
You are invited to attend the ceremony virtually, by visiting the Centennial College website at:
