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 Returning Alumni Award

Alumni Association Returning Alumni Award

The Alumni Association’s mission is to inspire our global alumni community to feel connected and supported through programs and services designed to promote the spirit of lifelong success and alma mater pride.

Recognizing that many graduates return to university after their degree, the Alumni Association Council established a monetary award to help alumni further their education. The Alumni Association Returning Alumni Award is available to alumni studying at either the undergraduate or graduate level, in any faculty or program. Whether you’re in your first year or last, studying full-time or part-time, you can submit an application for this $500 award. 

How do I apply? The application process is simple. Tell us how you align with our mission and vision, and submit a letter of reference from a professor, employer, or supervisor.

Not returning to UOIT but want to encourage fellow graduates? You can help us grow the award to support additional students each year by making an online donation today.

The council is committed to supporting alumni, and we are excited to see how this award can help returning graduates achieve their academic goals.
