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.

Celebrate with us at Alumni Association Receptions

Alumni Association Oshawa ReceptionThe Alumni Association Council (AAC) has been busy planning great receptions for you this year.  We’ve got a new lineup of events for you to attend in your community, along with the classics.

In April, our first reception was held at Riley’s in Oshawa where we enjoyed a night of pool and appetizers. It was amazing to see how many of you came out and judging by the feedback we received, you all had a fantastic night.

Then we took our hospitality all the way to Calgary. A small but mighty group met up at the National on 10th and enjoyed a night of great conversation and many laughs. 

And most recently, alumni came together at the Madison Avenue Pub in Toronto for some great food and great times. It was great to see alumni come out for their first alumni reception!

Out last summer meetup will be at the Pickering Food Truck Festival on Friday, August 5. Be sure to RSVP and follow us on OT_Alumni Twitter and OTAlumni Facebook for updates on these events to come. 

Don’t miss out on these fantastic events! Receptions are a great way to meet up with old friends, meet some new ones and have a ton of fun.  The AAC will be there, so be sure to say hello.
