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.

Our students have big dreams

You can open the door to endless possibilities

Students in class during lecture.As a little boy, Malik* dreamt of becoming a doctor. A big dream, given that no one in his family has ever entered post-secondary education. Like Malik, more than half of Ontario Tech undergraduate students are the first in their families to attend university and face many financial and social challenges to making their dreams a reality.

By donating to Ontario Tech's Pi Day of Giving Campaign, you can help remove financial barriers to education and create opportunities for talented, ambitious individuals, like Malik, to reach their infinite potential.

Gifts made by March 31 will be matched dollar for dollar by our Board of Governors' Matching Fund, ensuring DOUBLE the impact!
