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.

Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the fifth annual Women for STEM Summit - Allyship: Disrupting Bias on October 11, 2023, at Ontario Tech University.

The full-day event provides a forum to bring together industry, community and university leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with students and alumni. 

Together, we had the opportunity for meaningful conversations and explored diverse viewpoints on the challenges, successes and key learnings experienced by women in STEM fields. 

Ontario Tech understands the benefits of supporting women in STEM. With your support, we can help more women students to fulfill their potential in innovative STEM-based fields.
