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.

June 23, 2021 Virtual Convocation Ceremonies

Convocation is a much-celebrated occasion by our university. The restrictions that were in place by the Government of Ontario and Public Health as a result of the covid-19 pandemic prevented us from holding large in-person gatherings. To prevent further delays in celebrating the class of 2020 graduates, the university hosted virtual ceremonies on June 23, 2021 to recognize the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of the graduates.
