The above Guidelines have been revised to update the information related to various components of the CSC Recognition Program.

What has changed?

  • Under Career Milestones, the Long Service Recognition section now indicates that the item awarded for 15 and 20 years of service is a gift of choice from the Seasons website.
  • The Art Solomon Memorial Award was added to the section entitled Other CSC Awards and Recognition.
