Remembrance Day 2021

Centennial College’s proud annual tradition of marking Remembrance Day continues this November 11 with a live broadcast presentation that will encompass all campuses. Our ceremony begins at 10:15 am and runs for approximately one hour. 

This unified event will be broadcast 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.

You are invited to attend the ceremony virtually next Thursday morning by visiting the Centennial College website at: www.centennialcollege.ca/remembrance-day.

Our 2021 service will be hosted by professor and author Malcolm Kelly, and has been created with the assistance of Centennial’s Broadcast and Film program, as well as staff and students at our other campuses.

Honoured guests will include:

  • Lt. Colonel Rick O’Neill, Canadian Army, who did three tours of duty in Afghanistan and now is Residential Program Officer at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto.
  • Commander Leanne Crowe, Canadian Navy, an Afghanistan veteran who was the first woman Combat Diver in Canadian Forces history. She is now Chair, Department of Military Planning and Operations, Canadian Forces College.
  • Dan Middleton, who will appear on behalf of his father, Flying Officer Robert (Bob) J. Middleton. Bob was a regular at our services, and was due to appear again this year. Sadly, he passed away on October 13 at the age of 98. Bob flew 33 combat operations as a navigator with 431 Squadron, RCAF.
