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.

OER equals Love

Ontario Tech is quickly becoming a provincial leader in the adoption of OER for its students. Since 2018, we've saved our students over $500,000! But sometimes the OER available online aren't quite what faculty are looking for - they may be too broad, may not have enough examples or practice problems, or really need to be combined with another OER to make it the best it can be. However, finding the time and resources to modify or adapt available OER is difficult. 

That's why Ontario Tech is proud to host the OER Lab -  a student-run, staff-managed group that brings content and technological expertise to the timely creation of high quality OER that will be used directly in an Ontario Tech undergraduate course by Ontario Tech students
