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.

When a decision to close the University is made, Continuous Learning classes will be cancelled, regardless of their location.  In other words, Continuous Learning will defer class cancellation determinations to the University. If the University cancels classes, then Continuous Learning classes will be cancelled regardless of where they are located on campus or at an external location.

It is the responsibility of all learners and instructors to make themselves aware of any class cancellations by visiting the Ontario Tech University website on the “Emergency information and service disruptions” webpage.

For more information about this process, including how this information will be communicated, please visit the Campus Services website, Emergency Closure Policy, and Emergency Closure Procedures.
