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.

As Ontario Tech’s Chancellor and a champion of our students, I would like to invite you to participate in next year's Chancellor's Challenge - a 7.2 km run/walk, which is the distance between the north and south locations of Ontario Tech. Come join me to support the students of Ontario Tech.

Our students are innovators and change-makers who will improve our lives and environment in the future. 

This is a difficult time for our students. I’m calling on you, my friends and colleagues to make sure Ontario Tech students have the support they need so they can succeed. Gifts made to the Chancellor’s Challenge are being matched dollar-for-dollar by Ontario Tech, so your gift will have double the impact.

Now is the time to make a difference in someone’s life while having some fun, virtually of course.  I’m asking you to be a part of our team for the Chancellor's Challenge.

You can join the Challenge by walking or running.  Please consider sharing this with your friends and family, asking them to  participate with a gift to the Chancellor’s Challenge.

Thanks for your support, 
Mitch Frazer, Chancellor 

 “Leading by example by donating to the Student Relief Fund and challenging others to do so as well, demonstrates to our students that they will succeed because we’re here for them. I am so pleased to see that Ontario Tech’s Chancellor is as passionate as I am in giving back to students at Ontario Tech University.  Together we are creating the type of graduate our society needs.”  - Bob Baun (2007 Honorary Doctor of Laws), Toronto Maple Leafs hockey legend
