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.

Board of Governors' Pathways Award

The university's college-to-university transfer programs offer college graduates the ability to turn a diploma into a degree in as little as two years. As many of these students juggle family obligations, job commitments and other financial responsibilities, the cost of tuition can be a barrier to the pursuit of their goals.

In 2014, the Board of Governors saw the need to encourage the focus and hard work of these undergraduate students and created Pathways Awards. The scholarship is disbursed annually to the top student in each of the 20 transfer programs.

Help us encourage our college-to-university transfer students in their pursuit of academic excellence by contributing to the Ontario Tech University Board of Governors’ Pathways Awards. Your generosity places our students on the right path to achieving their academic goals. 

Double the power of your gift

The university's Board of Governors has made funds available for the exclusive purpose of matching donations to student scholarships and awards.
