As we approach the 2020 holiday season, Century Audio Visual would like to take a moment to reflect on what has been an unusual yet profound year. We began 2020 with business as usual. We knew that there was a threat of a pandemic, but it felt so far away. Here we are, almost ten months into an unprecedented time in our world.
As 2020 comes to a close, we want to take this opportunity to say thank you. Thank you for your belief in our team, as you entrusted us with your business during these challenging times. Together, we made 2020 a year to remember—to reflect on the positive and what we have accomplished. 2020 was the year that people connected, despite everything.
Century Audio Visual wishes everyone a safe and joyous Christmas and Holiday Season. May you and those you hold dear, be well. May your connections remain rooted, even when circumstances keep us apart.
From our family to yours, all the best for a healthy and happy New Year!
Century Audio Visual’s Commitment to the Community
This year, 2020 we saw many of the events that we support get cancelled or went virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we continued to do what we could, when we could for these notable events and noble causes. We donated turkeys, volunteered, operated AV gear for virtual events, helped with committee planning, delivered food, and donated to a family with a girl who is battling cancer for the 5th time in her young life.
Thank you to every member of the Century Audio Visual Team. Your support made a difference to these, our neighbours in the surrounding community:
The Legends Row initiative was created in March 2012 by a small group of dedicated community volunteers and culminated with its opening on June 3rd, 2017. Through their efforts, Mississauga’s “Walk of Fame” will continue to recognize and celebrate the legacy of our city’s unique citizens, helping us enrich and foster community pride and spirit.

Peel Children’s Aid Society
Peel Children’s Aid protects children from abuse and neglect and helps parents and caregivers build healthy families. In addition to protecting children, which we do with the support of our Peel community, we also work with families who may be facing challenges such as poverty, unemployment, ill-health, domestic violence, mental health issues, or caring for a child who has serious physical, emotional or developmental difficulties. Some families also just need parenting support.
