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.

Life insurance

Life insurance: it can help you fund a truly generous gift tomorrow while realizing attractive tax benefits at an affordable cost today!

Three ways to contribute life insurance

  • You can give the future proceeds of an existing policy: designate the university as the beneficiary and your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt.
  • You can give the policy itself: in addition to designating the university as the beneficiary, transfer the ownership of the policy to the university and receive a charitable receipt for the net cash surrender value.
  • You can give a new policy: receive a charitable tax receipt for any premiums paid on the policy.

Benefits of gifts of life insurance

  • Affordable annual premiums often resulting in the largest gift of your lifetime.
  • Receive a charitable tax receipt based on the way the insurance was gifted.
  • Gifts of life insurance are excluded from probate.
