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.

New building to create extra learning space at the North location

Software Informatics Research Centre

If you’ve been at the north location lately or driven along Conlin Road, you’ve noticed a new building taking shape on our campus.

It’s the university’s new Software and Informatics Research Centre (SIRC), a building that will give the university new spaces for research, study and future active learning. Set to open this fall, SIRC will provide four floors of flexible innovation and learning space as well as sorely needed student study spaces. It will also see the Registrar’s office relocate to its first floor to provide a central location for student services.
This new development sets the stage for future development of our Windfields Farm lands.

To watch a live feed of the construction site, read more about the building’s features or learn more about ways in which you can support its development, visit the SIRC website.
