Message from Your President
Hello CCRA Members:
Welcome to the Fall 2023 edition of the Centennial College Retirees’ Association’s newsletter.
The CCRA Board of Directors continued to meet during the Pandemic via ZOOM and although we were
grateful to have this option to connect with one another, we look forward to in-person meetings when
possible in the coming months.
Meet Your Board Members
New Retirees and Members in 2023-2024
The 2024 CCRA membership drive will commence in January, 2024. CCRA is looking forward to
welcoming all retirees, new and seasoned, regardless of when you retired.
Due to privacy policies, we’re not able to reach out to new retirees, unless they completed the
retirement form in their exit package or contact CCRA directly.
We are always eager to have retirees join the Association, so if you know a retired colleague who is not
currently a member, please encourage them to consider joining.

Centennial In the News
Centennial College has opened the doors to the A-Building – Canada’s first LEED Gold, zero carbon, mass timber, higher education building. The building formerly known as the A-Block, establishes a new gateway to Centennial’s flagship Progress Campus that supports indigenous ways of being and teaching. An indigenous Working Group made vital contributions to Indigenous elements of the Build. The building spans six stories and more than 130,000 square feet. The expansion was accompanied by a 15,000 square-foot renovation.
