Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Lead your faculty to victory! 

As a final year undergraduate student, you will soon be walking across the stage to accept your hard-earned degree and the Alumni Office will be there in June to celebrate your success with you and your entire class.  

In the meantime, the Alumni Office is currently seeking two or three representatives from every faculty to form the 2020 Graduating Class Challenge (GCC) Committee. The GCC Committee supports the Alumni Office with the planning and execution of the GCC to guarantee relevance and encourage the participation of their peers.  This position is for students who are interested in gaining fundraising and leadership skills. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page to express your interest. 

If you have any questions about the committee process or the GGC that cannot be answered online, please contact us at

What does a faculty representative do? 

Committee activities run from late 2019 to March 2020. During this time, the GCC faculty representatives will:

  • Attend approximately four one-hour meetings in the Fall/Winter Academic Terms to:
    • Participate in the Class Gift fundraising initiative discussion.
    • Provide input on GCC promotional materials, promotional strategies, event schedule and activities.
    • Attend one final meeting to provide constructive feedback for the following GCC.
  • Assist with GCC promotions:
    • Sign up for shifts at promotional tables.
    • Promote the GCC on social media.
    • Invite peers to events.
    • Encourage participation in the challenge (questionnaire, mugs, class photos).
