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.

Welcome to our second issue of Connected

Welcome to our second issue of Connected!

It has been a great pleasure working with the members of the engagement committee and the rest of the council to develop our second issue of Connected! Our goal with each issue is to get bigger and better, connecting alumni with news from the university and fellow alumni.

Included in this issue are:

  • Exciting profiles of our amazing alumni, including features on two international alumni and two local alumni.
  • A look into the benefits of career services.
  • Our reflection on the 2015 Graduating Class Challenge.
  • Information on the upcoming Alumni Association Council elections and awards nominations.

This is a very exciting time of year for the council as we discover what amazing things alumni are doing for their community, how alumni are contributing to their field of expertise or within their career and welcome our newest members at Convocation.

For this issue, we decided to try something new. We are introducing an e-news version, delivered straight to your inbox, and encouraging you to read more on the magazine’s website. While you’re browsing the content on the site, be sure to update your information in our alumni database, learn more about the our new alumni networks and check out our affinity programs for discounts on insurance and more! 

As we move from spring into summer, don’t forget that Homecoming is only a few short months away! We hope you can attend this year, so bookmark the website and stay in touch with us through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for future updates.  

This is your magazine so please feel free send us your feedback, story ideas or let us know what you expect from the alumni association. You can reach me at alumni@uoit.ca

Have a great summer and hope to see you in October!
