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.

Coaching for Performance and Mentorship


A mentor “has a deep personal interest in your long term development” and a coach “develops specific skills for the task, challenges and performance expectations at work”. Combining these two distinct abilities will be mutually beneficial as you develop confidence and grow within your chosen career. 

The objective of this Ontario Tech University certificate program is to build your professional confidence in-order to provide guidance and "mentorship" to those who are establishing or growing in their career. This program is specifically beneficial to all executives, supervisors and managers to encourage staff performance. HR professionals or business owners will also learn to build a successful in-house mentorship program.
