In this work, the Aharonov–Casher (AC) phase is calculated for spin-1 particles in a non-commutative space. The AC phase has previously been calculated from the Dirac equation in a non-commutative space using a gauge-like technique. In the spin-1 case, we use the Kemmer equation to calculate the phase in a similar manner. It is shown that the holonomy receives non-trivial kinematical corrections. By comparing the new result with the already known spin-1/2 case, one may conjecture a generalized formula for the corrections to holonomy for higher spins.
