While our campuses remain closed to most students/staff, many services and supports are offered online via our COVID-19 Information Centre.

Under the Pickering Nuclear Contingency Plan, Progress Campus serves as the Emergency Control Centre (ECC). The ECC is used to coordinate and decontaminate emergency services personnel who are responding to and returning from the emergency area. 

According to the plan, Centennial College is responsible for the following

  • Closing the Progress Campus (suspending classes and regular business operations and fully evacuating the campus and parking lots)

  • Providing essential College staff to maintain the plant operations, provide telecom support

  • Provide campus security support function for the site with Toronto Police Services. 

In the event that the College is notified that the plan has been enacted

  1. The College will suspend normal operations

  2. Emergency Preparedness Officers may be called to assist with the evacuation of the campus and with the securing of the campus
