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.

Run into an old friend at the alumni receptions

Alumni Association Receptions 2017We all lead busy lives but make plans to catch up with friends as much as we can. Plans don’t always work out the way we want them to, so unexpectedly running into friends is even better. I have a friend, and former university coworker, I have not seen since 2011. I happened to connect with him at the Toronto and Pickering Alumni Association Receptions last year. It was a nice surprise!

This is exactly what our annual receptions are designed to do and we hope you come out to one this spring. This year we are hosting some action-packed events in addition to our usual pub-style receptions, so keep an eye out for an invitation to the first reception in early April!

Check out the dates for upcoming receptions on the alumni website.
