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 Day 2021

As a part of our efforts to promote the use of open access material, Ontario Tech University will be hosting OER Day on January 20th from 11 am to 2 pm.

This will be a great opportunity to learn about the benefits of OER as well as to receive guidance on accessing these resources. 

Professors interested in gaining some insight on incorporating OER into their classes will be able to hear from leading advocates in the field, as well as some of our own faculty members who have had success with free alternatives to traditional course materials.
