At the two community colleges I went to, I was told they would rarely close because it could affect the unemployment insurance payments to apprentice students. This is purely anecdotal, but heard it in two different provinces. I never had cause to look into it further because at the first college, I wasn't an apprentice student and at the second, I was, but never had weather bad enough to warrant closure.

As an apprentice chef, I had to take 2 months off work to go to school and was paid UI benefits during that time.
