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

Ontario Tech University celebrated our second annual Pi Day of Giving on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Pi Day is a day devoted to supporting our students and building awareness for our university. 

All gifts to the General Scholarship Endowment were matched by the Board of Governors’ Matching Fund and thanks to our alumni affinity partner, Johnson Insurance, all alumni donations were also matched. That means your $20 donation was actually worth $60 - that’s triple the impact for our students!

We are so proud to announce that we raised more than $53,000 and surpassed our goal! Thank you for helping us grow our infinite circle of supporters and community members committed to student success.

March 14th was also officially recognized as Pi Day of Giving throughout the Durham Region with proclamations made by The Regional Municipality of Durham, The City of Oshawa, Town of Ajax, Municipality of Clarington, City of Pickering, Township of Scugog, and Town of Whitby! The Mayors of each municipality also created videos to declare their support for our Pi Day of Giving.

Mark your calendar now for next year’s Pi Day of Giving -  Saturday, March 14, 2020
