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.

    Executive Director, TALENT™

    Many years ago Rachel was given some advice that has stuck with her ever since: fall in love with the problem you want to solve, not a particular solution—because it might not be the right solution. Rachel is in love with the ‘problem’ of graduate job readiness and needs your input as she continues to try and solve it with TALENT™.

    As a future student of Ontario Tech University, you’ll want to hear how TALENT™ is being developed with you in mind. 

    We look forward to meeting you!

This new organization changes how we think about higher education’s role in essential skills, as we focus on our priority to re-imagine learning. We will work closely with industry to help our graduates be relevant today and throughout their careers. Co-creating this program with industry and community partners allows our students and alumni to become, and remain, job ready. A practical focus is in our DNA, and we are working hard to address the very real skills gap in Ontario and in Canada. We need all Canadians to think about learning in an entirely new and flexible fashion in order to be globally competitive.
