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.

Help us celebrate the class of 2017

Graduating Class Challenge

With the holidays approaching and the new year just around the corner, it’s almost time for the 2017 Graduating Class Challenge (GCC)!

The GCC is a one-week campaign with exclusive events to celebrate graduating students, inform them about alumni services and resources and give them an opportunity to provide suggestions for future engagement. It all kicks off on Monday, January 23 and runs until Friday, January 27, 2017.

We’re calling on all classes, from 2003 to 2016, to join us in the celebration at the Student-Alumni Connect Happy Hour on Thursday, January 26 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Shagwells on the Ridge. Come and share your experiences about life after university with graduating students from your faculty. The event is a great opportunity to give back and support a future peer.  

Contact for more information and to register for this great event.
