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.

Giving Tuesday

We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday – these are two days for getting deals but let’s talk about the one day for giving thanks.

December 1 is Giving Tuesday- a global day of giving that has grown into a movement uniting people around the world. A day when giving to a cause you care about can inspire millions of others to do the same.


This Giving Tuesday consider giving to our Student Relief Fund.

With so many of our students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many are struggling to pay rent, utilities, tuition and have many unforeseen/unexpected expenses. Our students are facing food insecurity and with your help, we can provide them with much needed support.  All gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to our Board of Governors’ Matching Fund.

On December 1, we encourage you to make a gift online in support of our Student Relief Fund. Share why you give, it will inspire others to do the same.  Giving back feels good.
