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.

First Pi Day of Giving was a great success

Pi Day of Giving UOITThank you to everyone who supported our first Pi Day of Giving on Wednesday, March 14!

Since opening our doors, nearly 15 years ago, we have quickly grown to be one of Canada’s most innovative, STEM-intensive post-secondary institutions.

That’s why we chose March 14, 2018 for our day of giving.

The campus was electric with Pi Day excitement across all buildings at the north and downtown locations. Faculties got a little slice of the action with activities near their pie stations, such as the estimating Pi demonstration from the Physics Department, Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Business and Information Technology’s pie in the face.

Alumni also got involved in the fun through regional pie party celebrations at OPG in Pickering and the Life of Pie Café in Ottawa, the Alumni Association Council hosted a fun night out at the Marlies game, and many of your fellow alumni took to their social media channels to help spread the word.

Alumni, faculty, staff and members of the community came together and raised more than $23,000 for student scholarships.  We also created a lot of buzz on the university’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds. 

Check out President Steven Murphy's thank you message and our photo gallery from this year’s events.

Mark your calendar now for next year’s Pi Day of Giving -  Thursday March 14, 2019. Together, we can grow our circle and make a huge difference for current students and our university.
