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.

The new university centre will feature the Student Resource Hub where students can connect directly to modern services and resources in one location.

The centre’s open concept, floor-to-ceiling windows, artistic décor and inclusive workspaces will foster innovation, networking and creativity. Exposed walls will showcase building mechanics, bringing the centre’s functionality to life and sparking curiosity and learning beyond the classroom.

Our university Student Union will also operate out of the new building, providing expanded space and increased access for students.

The new centre will bring the Faculty of Health learning Sciences into one space. As health care becomes increasingly complex, the industry demands graduates who can work seamlessly within interdisciplinary teams. This centralization is intended to create valuable and dynamic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to engage in enriched learning and mentorship.

A high-tech simulation lab will provide access to advanced 3D solutions and augmented and virtual reality, significantly enhancing simulated and experiential learning. Students will practice their skills on mannequins that talk, breathe, make audible sounds and have a pulse, allowing almost any health-care scenario to be replicated using the latest hospital equipment.
