“The Diocese has held our Bishop’s Dinner gala at the Commonwealth Centre since 2010. It is a 3 course gala with upwards of 600 guests. We moved our event there because of competitive pricing and flexibility of the venue. We have kept our event there because of the incredibly positive experience. The staff works with us to make sure our event is nothing short of perfect. The food is always a hit with our guests. It is a pleasure to work with Commonwealth Centre and their whole team. We are proud customers.”SAMANTHA JONES

“I have been using the Commonwealth Centre since 2012 for our corporate events. My overall experience has been excellent from receiving excellent service in securing the date to executing the event. The whole team is very passionate about providing the best experience for each event. The venue is close by our office. Not only is it just a short walk away, but there is plenty of parking. I like the flexibility of the venue – it is large enough to accommodate big conferences, but can be closed into a smaller area to host an intimate luncheon. I have had plated dinners and buffets, and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. It always hot, delicious and plentiful. “JACKIE PRISNIE

“The entire team at Commonwealth Centre are flexible, friendly, professional, and very accommodating. For the last five years we have chosen this location for our high school’s Grad and each year, they ensures that it is even more successful than the previous. Team members provides suggestions and use their expertise to meet the different needs of each graduation group. They are open to the students’ ideas and themes, and each year they improve the experience.
The location is easy to access, provides free ample parking, and lends itself well to graduation groups as it is away from high traffic areas, and provides a more intimate experience. Commonwealth Centre also provides quality catering meal choices, and highly flexible banquet room configurations. We could not ask for a better venue, nor staff, to hold our event. I would not hesitate to recommend the Commonwealth for any Graduation event – the management’s expertise and communication skills make the experience flow and ensures everything is in place so that we have a very exciting and successful night!”JOANNE BRISEBOIS

We hosted my brother's reception party at Commonwealth and it was an amazing experience! We had an entire week of planning events, and our party at Commonwealth was the least stressful for us to plan, because Vik and Deepak were so great to work with and took care of everything! They were beyond accommodating and I cannot thank you enough! The food was superb! Our guests are still talking about the midnight snack tacos we had at the party!!
I have hosted several graduation receptions at the Commonwealth Hall. I cannot say enough about the service or the food. What a wonderful event space. I would recommend this location to EVERYONE! They are so wonderful and accommodating. We have upwards of 600 guest at our events and do a sit down plated dinner. I am always so shocked at how they manage to keep the delusions food they make hot while serving that many people, not only that, they pay amazing attention to detail with all of our food restrictions and/or needs. I am so thankful I found this space for our graduations.
Super friendly staff and ownership. Very accommodating and clean. We had 3 events there and Jas and his team made everything so comfortable and smooth. Decor was amazing and he delivered exactly what we had envisioned. Above all the food was very well prepared, right on time. Appetizers were delicious especially the fish. Excellent location and ample parking. One thing that stood out for us is that Jas accommodated and offered a full Pakistani menu which was nice. We also mentioned to Jas to have a nut free menu as some of our children have allergies, and he went over and above to ensure that there would be no cross contamination of nuts. I can't thank him enough because most places wouldn't go the extra mile. We will definitely recommend Commonwealth and hold future events there. Thank you for making our daughter's wedding very special and memorable. You're definitely a big part of it!
I had my engagement party at the hall last week and I am super satisfied with the service. I don't have words to explain how much I loved the decoration, it looked so royal and elegant. The food was amazing. This is a great place for wedding or birthday parties or simply any party. Thanks team Commonwealth for an amazing experience!
