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.

Experience Weekend at Ontario Tech

Are you wondering what it's like to be a student at Ontario Tech? Join us on-campus at Experience Weekend!

Experience Weekend is an opportunity to find your place at Ontario Tech and experience our campus community. Join us on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26 to experience what it will be like as a Ridgeback.  You'll get to step inside our labs, tour campus buildings, get information on programs and services, and have your questions answered by faculty and staff. We can't wait to bring the pictures in our viewbook to life—and show you what your life could be like as a Ridgeback!

To make sure we have time to show you everything, we will be dividing  Experience Weekend into sections, based on our program clusters. More information to come in early 2023.  

We look forward to getting to know you! You're invited to bring up to two guests with you but please let us know they're coming when you register.

Ontario Tech requires that:

  • All campus visitors must be double vaccinated as per the university's mandatory vaccination directive.
  • All campus visitors must complete our COVID-19 pre-entry screening before coming to campus.
  • Masks be worn at all times in indoor spaces and outside where distancing is not possible.
  • Prior to entering university buildings, Campus Security personnel situated at designated building entrances will ask to see all of the following:

    • A paper copy, photo or PDF of your most recent vaccination receipt.
    • Your green electronic screening receipt indicating they you may come to campus.
    • A valid piece of photo identification, such as a driver's license or health card.
