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 a champion of students and technological and social innovation in education, Mitch has set a $1-million fundraising goal in support of student success.  To achieve this, he has created the Chancellor’s Fund to raise funds for the university’s highest priorities including student awards and construction of Shawenjigewining Hall.

As part of the  Chancellor's Fund goal, the Chancellor's Challenge is an annual run/walk event to raise funds for Ontario Tech students. The 2021 and 2022 events were a resounding success and set the stage for making it an annual event on the Ontario Tech calendar. Join us on Saturday, September 23 for the 2023 Chancellor's Challenge. Together, we can reach the finish line and support students in need.
