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 Council Elections 2017

Last year I decided to get involved as a general member of the Alumni Association Council’s Engagement Committee and got a first-hand look at the programs and events. It was such a great experience that I decided to run in the last elections to help serve the alumni community.

Being involved in the elections and running is a great way to immerse yourself in the exciting world of our alumni community. Over the next few months, information about the council elections will be available.  If you have strengths in event management, communications and leadership, I encourage you to consider applying for one of the four two-year term positions.

Members of the Alumni Association Council can serve as committee chairs or committee members of one of the three committees: Engagement, Finance, and Governance.
