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.

Join us for Homecoming!

September is here and the Alumni Association invites you to join us to Paint the Town Blue for Homecoming weekend!

Fellow alumni from far and wide, as well as Ontario Tech faculty, staff and students, will be getting into the blue and white spirit on Friday and Saturday, September 26 and 27 to reconnect and celebrate. This fun-filled weekend has plenty of free activities to enjoy, including:

  • Thinking forward: Faculty-alumni round table luncheon.
  • The comedy of Debra DiGiovanni.
  • Food Truck Alley.
  • Minute-to-Win-It challenges, featuring the ACE Blizzard Blast, for a chance to win a $1,000 award.

You can also check out the Alumni Association annual general meeting, an alumni reception, the always-popular Alumni Adventures: Tales from the Other Side, and much more. 

Bring your family too. There will be campus tours. And, children will love the Future Ridgebacks Soccer Clinic and the Fun for Kids Space with everything from crafts to musical chairs and gum jar guessing.

This will be Ontario Tech's fifth Homecoming – let’s make it our biggest and best Homecoming ever!
