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.

Alumni Association welcomes new alumni

Hunter and a grad from the class of 2016 On Thursday, June 9 and Friday, June 10, the Alumni Association welcomed close to 2,000 new alumni to the community. Alumni Association Council members Matthew Fawcett, Kaitlynn Gambier, Sean Kell, and Christa Andrews spoke at the four ceremonies and encouraged new alumni to stay connected with the university. 

Remember back to when you walked across the stage and received your parchment, officially ending the long-haul of endless studying, lab reports, group projects and assigned reading. Think back to that moment, what advice would you have given yourself then?

There are many opportunities for you to share words of wisdom or even mentor new graduates. Attend one of the Alumni Association Receptions or join the Student-Alumni Mentorship Program, either way you can make a difference by sharing your experiences with this year’s new alumni.
