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.

Entrepreneurial corner

At UOIT, the pursuit of innovation is at the heart of the university and many of our graduates carry this forward into their careers, creating businesses or delivering services they are passionate about. As proud alumni, we want to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of our entrepreneurs. The Alumni Association Council is proud to present the Entrepreneurial Corner, a free listing to promote the services or businesses created by our graduates. We believe this is an excellent tool for networking, a great way to advertise your business, and an opportunity to find your own entrepreneurial spirit through the achievements of others.

As this listing grows, not only will it serve an opportunity for networking and to support alumni businesses, but there may be a job you are interested that allows you to work with fellow alumni. Or, it might serve as a great recruitment tool that allows you to find the perfect candidate for your company.

If you are looking to find out about alumni businesses, interested in networking with successful graduates, in the early stages of creating a niche in the market that others can benefit from, looking for a job or recruiting to hire, or looking for inspiration from your fellow alumni, look no further than the Entrepreneurial Corner.
