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.

GCC Article 2016

Join us on Thursday, January 28 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Shagwell’s on the Ridge for the Student-Alumni Connect event. It’s your chance to share stories from life after UOIT with graduating students. This event is part of the Graduating Class Challenge (GCC) that kicks off Monday, January 25 and runs until Friday, January 29, 2016.

The GCC is a one-week campaign with exclusive events to celebrate the graduating class, inform them about alumni services and resources, and give them an opportunity to provide suggestions for future engagement. The feedback will help keep UOIT's more than 12,000 graduates connected to one another and to the university.

The Student-Alumni Connect event is a great opportunity to give back and support a future peer.
