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.

University community welcomes new grads

With messages of support, encouragement and celebration, we welcomed the class of 2017 to the Alumni Association on June 8 and 9. Close to 2,200 new graduates walked across the stage to receive their degrees, bringing our alumni community up to more than 16,000 strong.

Here are just a few of the images and messages shared via #UOITGrad17:

For some of you, convocation may feel like a distant memory, for others it was as recent as this past fall. Help support these new graduates as they take the first steps on their career path.

Consider attending an Alumni Association Reception or joining the Student-Alumni Mentorship Program (STAMP) as a mentor. Both of these opportunities can help you engage with these graduates and help them succeed.
