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.

Pi Day of Giving

Pi Day of Giving Help us Reach our GoalCalling all Alumni! Support our second annual Pi Day of Giving on Thursday, March 14th, 2019!

Ontario Tech has grown to be one of Canada’s most innovative, STEM-intensive post-secondary institutions. We are celebrating this achievement on March 14 - Pi Day!

Pi is a significant number in STEM education as it is a numerical constant that represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. No matter the size of the circle, the value of pi is the same. Pi is an infinite number which represents the endless possibilities for our students. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. 

On Pi Day, we’re looking to grow our circle by inviting alumni, students, faculty, staff and members of our community to take part in a day of giving. On March 14th get active on social media: let’s get #uoitpiday trending! Tweet what you love about the university, Instagram your favourite place on campus (Bonus if this picture includes pie!) and share on Facebook and LinkedIn why the university means so much to you!

Feeling philanthropic?  As ambassadors of the university, we encourage you to share a slice of your pie on March 14 by giving back through an online donation that will directly support the Student Success Fund and you can support a faculty of your choice. 

 We also hope you will join the celebrations in person at our Free Community Movie Night on March 12, 2019

Free Community Movie Night! | March 12, 2019
