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

It's that time of year again! Our third annual Pi Day of Giving is on March 14. 

From March 11 to 15, join the festivities on social media using #ontariotechpiday. If you are able, please share a slice of your pie on March 14 by giving back through an online donation, which will be matched by our Board of Governors.

Also, there are too many types of pie to choose a favourite, so all Pi Day donors choose what their gift is used for! You can feel good about giving to an area you connect with most - is it lab space? Scholarships? Athletics? 

Donor support enhances the student experience, which creates endless possibilities for our future leaders. Our goal is to enhance awareness about our university and raise $75,000 for students. Your alumni community is almost 20,000 strong - imagine the impact if all alumni gave $31.41As the value of pi, the possibilities for our students are endless - let’s show the world what we can do together!

We also hope you will join the celebrations in person at our community events:
