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.

Shop Ontario Tech

Ontario Tech University has partnered with Follett Higher Education Group to introduce Shop Ontario Tech to provide books and course materials, branded merchandise and school supplies to our campus community. 

The store is located in the Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre, room 1058 and online at www.ontariotechstore.ca.  Follett was chosen as the campus retail partner with the best resources, technology and product selection to meet the unique needs of the Ontario Tech University community.

With this new partnership, you can expect the following from our campus store:

Passion for service: Follett is committed to delivering a hassle-free shopping experience with a clean and bright store environment, efficient check-out and knowledgeable team members who are prepared to help customers navigate the store’s wide product selection.

Affordable choices: Follett feels strongly that providing faculty and students with options enhances education. Sstudents will have access to:

  • New, used, print and digital options. The campus store will serve as a local resource to help students evaluate the growing number of course material choices.
  • Text rental. Follett’s rental program can save students up to 80 percent compared to purchasing new. Students will also enjoy risk-free rental policies that allow highlighting, taking notes and easily converting a rental to a purchase should they decide to keep the books.
  • Price Match.  Follett ensures students get materials at the lowest cost possible by price matching against eligible competitors. The difference in price is provided on a store gift card that can then be used toward other course material or supply purchases.

Seamless access: Follett helps faculty teach and students learn through easy access to products and services that add value to the educational experience, such as:

  • Course material adoption resources. Follett brings an advanced online adoption tool that supports faculty exploration and streamlines adoption submission.
  • Digital learning technologies. Follett believes that no single format, device or publisher can meet the varied needs of students and faculty. Therefore, the campus store will provide a host of device-agnostic learning technologies – including Follett’s BryteWave digital textbook reader.
  • Online shopping. As part of the transition, our online campus store will join the eFollett network. eFollett.com connects all Follett campus stores, Follett’s distribution center and a range of vendors to streamline community access to needed materials on any device.

We look forward to welcoming you in store and online!
