As the weather cools, the Centennial community comes together to enjoy local events such as a pumpkin parade, bazaars, tree lighting, carol singing, dinner/dance and of course the annual Winterfest.

CCRA brings information on what’s happening in and around Centennial to residents throughout the year with the free CCRA Centennial News and e-blast updates, as well as Facebook and Twitter posts.
Advocacy and community development
CCRA is on the front lines of social, cultural, environmental and community issues. During the Johns Manville plant closure, CCRA mobilized residents and local resources to help eliminate the hazard of concentrated residual asbestos fibres near the Port Union Waterfront.
Friends and neighbours get together every year at CCRA’s Spring Social for a buffet dinner and dance, cash bar, raffle and door prizes. The CCRA’s ’70s dance at the West Rouge Community Centre on March 30 , 2019 was DY-NO-MITE! Music from Stevie Wonder, Donna Summers, The Tramps and ABBA were just some of the bands that had the dance floor rockin’. “The Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and “The Slosh” competed for floor space during one song that had the dancers and onlookers completely entertained!
In 2016, residents watched as the west wall of Centennial Plaza was transformed with the beautiful Passage to Port Union mural. This massive painting portraying important aspects of the area’s history was introduced to our community at a public celebration and ceremony at the plaza.
