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.

We have you covered

The Alumni Association has been hard at work negotiating a new affinity relationship. These relationships benefit alumni by providing them with access to discounted services while also supporting alumni programs through a percentage of revenues. In other words, if an alumnus purchases a plan that best represents their interests through a particular partner, a percentage of that discounted service helps support the Alumni Association and its programming. It’s a win win-win! We are happy to announce our new health, dental and travel insurance benefits.

Below is a list of the products and services provided through Affinity Partners and one that is being worked on:

  1. Home and Auto Insurance: Johnson Inc. provides access to Home and Auto Insurance to alumni at group discount rates! We highly encourage you to shop around and ask Johnson Inc. for a fee quote the next time your insurance renewal comes up! There are no costs associated, only the potential to save.
  2. Health and Dental Benefits: Johnson now provides health and dental coverage There are three levels of coverage for health, hospital and dental including vision, drugs and paramedical services to meet the changing needs of your health requirements and lifestyle. 
  3. Travel Insurance: Now you can travel with peace of mind, as Johnson also provides you with travel insurance benefits.  Don’t forget to share your travel milestones with us for a chance to be featured in Connected:Living.
  4. Financial Services: The Alumni Association hopes to add a financial services affinity partner in the near future. This would provide alumni with day-to-day and life financing solutions (mortgages, line of credit) at preferable rates. This is a hard arena to negotiate in but we will keep trying!
