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.

Pi Day of Giving

Pi Day of Giving

Help us grow our circle. For us, Pi represents the endless possibilities for our students.

Hunter the Ridgeback mascot standing with a student and President Steven Murphy, celebrating Pi DayMarch 14, 2023, marks our sixth annual Pi Day of Giving: a community-wide online fundraising campaign to grow our circle of support for our students. We picked March 14 (3.14) for our university’s day of giving because it is Pi Day (Pi ≈ 3.14): a significant number for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It also has an infinite number of digits and is used to calculate the size of a circle.

On March 14, we're celebrating with free pi(e) for our campus community. 

Join us from noon to 1 p.m. at the following locations: 

Shawenjigewining Hall and Charles Hall. 

Last year, Ontario Tech alumni, faculty, staff, students and members of our community came together for our students raising more than $156,000. Donors gave to scholarships, bursaries, athletics and in support of the Student Relief Fund, which provides assistance to students in many different ways.

You can open the door to endless possibilities. Make a gift in support of our Pi Day of Giving.


Thank you to our 2023 Pi Day Sponsor
