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.

An Open Letter to UOIT Alumni

Since we opened our doors in 2003, more than 16,000 individuals have crossed the stage to pursue their dreams and advance their careers. It is very easy to lose track of friends, classmates and faculty. The UOIT Alumni Association Council wants to help keep you connected and invites every graduate to reach out and connect with us. We care about what you think and what kind of programs and events would be of interest to you. Our mandate is to serve alumni and in order to do that, we need your help.

Provide suggestions: What articles would you like to see in our Connected magazine? When is the best time to host events? What would you like to see us strive for in the future? Any and all suggestions help us serve the community’s needs.

Submit an alumni profile: We want to hear what you have been doing since graduation. Whether it is uncovering groundbreaking research, starting up businesses, or solving problems both small and large, we are interested in what results your dream-chasing has brought you.

Contribute to our Connected Magazine: Have a flair for writing? Our Connected magazine offers the platform to have your voice heard. Let everyone know what you are passionate about; share your experiences and engage in the community.

At the end of the day, we encourage all alumni to share what makes them proud of their university and to contribute where they can towards our global alumni community. Take initiative, take a large stride, and help us improve our community. Contact us at alumni@uoit.ca and let’s build this community together.
