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.

StAMP: alumni lead the way for current students and recent grads

Stamp alumni mentorship

After a successful pilot project, the Student-Alumni Mentorship Program (StAMP)  officially launched in September. StAMP provides an opportunity for alumni to be either a mentee or a mentor, and to create a partnership focused on career path advice, guidance on program options and the general sharing of knowledge.

For mentors, the program is a meaningful way to give back to current students and recent grads, and also helps them stay connected to the university community. The program is just as valuable for mentees as they are able to gain insight into what life is like after university.

Participants need to complete a brief mandatory online training and commit to four months, with a minimum of three interactions with your mentor/mentee via phone, e-mail, skype or face-to-face meeting.

Check out for more details.
