Thank you to the college community for working with the CCSAI throughout this film project!

We would like to extend a special thank you to the Life Safety & Security team, Athletics & Recreation, the Scheduling Office, Information Technology Services, Facilities and Services, ACCEL and the Alumni Association for their incredible support in helping facilitate the production schedule and in helping us maintain delivery of many of the services that our community has come to expect from the CCSAI.

Parking Lot 6 is now available for use again. We will share more details on the film production over time, but we can let you know that it is currently scheduled to be released around December or January.

Thank you again for cooperating with us through the location rental period, and we look forward to seeing you around the Student Centre and AWC!

Health Plan Update
Posted on

February 21st was decision day on the Domestic Health Plan. Polls were open all day at each of the four main campuses and Centennial’s students came out to vote on a new, more comprehensive health and dental plan. While there was considerable interest in the plan, with over 85% of votes cast in favor of the proposed plan, the referendum fell shy of reaching the minimum required votes for the results to be valid. By virtue of this, Centennial’s domestic students have decided to maintain their current coverage.   

We are always looking for ways to improve our services and to make certain we are offering the best services we can for Centennial students. Days like the 21st are a big part of that process. Thank you to our Board that built and promoted the proposal, thank you to our partners for their support in building and promoting the plan and thank you to all the students who came out to have their say.

Best regards,
Davinder Singh Dhanda
President – Centennial College Student Association Inc.
