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.

Ontario Tech gets CARIE-d away


This past July, the university released their exciting plans for a new research centre. The new addition will be known as the Centre for Advanced Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CARIE). Having such a centre as part of our institution will help to foster new partnerships with industry as well as the community. 

Although it will take years and several phases to develop CARIE, the excitement and advantages of having such a centre are evident as it will:

  • Bring innovation to the eastern Greater Toronto area and the surrounding area;
  • Act as a regional hub for market-driven researched collaborations with industry and community partners;
  • House more research space, student and lounge areas;
  • Support Ontario Tech’s outreach mandate and
  • Showcase innovation-in-action.
