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.

Gift planning

Today, many of our students and graduates have been the fortunate recipients of legacy gifts from remarkable people like you who had a passionate belief in youth, education and this university.

Gift planning can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of tomorrow’s students.

With our student population expected to double by 2030, the need to invest in additional space for research, teaching and studying is critical. And, as the cost of an education continues to rise, the need for scholarships and bursaries has never been greater.

Your legacy gift shows your confidence in our students and their potential, helping them pursue their educational and career goals. There are several options available to plan your gift to Ontario Tech University.
