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 Day Celebrations

The university’s Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre was a buzz on Saturday, October 14 as alumni, staff, students and family members came together to celebrate Alumni Day.

Current undergraduate students from all faculties shared their brilliant ideas to make the world a better place with posters and discussions about their research discoveries.

Applause echoed the halls as a guest speaker, Samantha Hazell, Electrical Engineering, class of 2011, took the stage with an empowering speech that reminded us all, that we can be resilient in the face of adversity.

The Alumni Association Council also held its Annual General Meeting reporting to members their achievements this year and exciting opportunities for future engagement.  It was also an opportunity to recognize successful alumni with three prestigious awards.

Congratulations to award winners:

  • Samantha Hazell, Electrical Engineering, class of 2011 – Achievement Award
  • Vahid Anwari, Health Science, class of 2016 – Up and Coming Award
  • Benjamin Earle, Master of Arts, Criminology, class of 2016 – Philanthropic Award

Following the day’s events, attendees made their way to the Campus Ice Centre to cheer on our Women’s hockey team as they took the ice against Queen's University.

The day was a great success and we thank all who attended!
