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.

The City of Oshawa as a Living Laboratory for Urban Issues

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology has teamed up with other local post-secondary partners on an innovative approach to finding solutions on today’s urban challenges.

In 2017, the City of Oshawa became a ‘Teaching City’ (TC), a living laboratory where students and academics work with city staff on a wide range of challenges such as the impact of climate change on watershed management, waste management, transportation, digital connectivity and more. Findings will uncover new ideas and new ways to advance the community to the benefit of residents.

In its earliest months, TC has created various research opportunities for its partners as well as experiential learning opportunities for students.
