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.

Overview

Students in a lab. Expand on your previous Ontario diploma and experience in the health field to earn three marketable credentials instead of one.

Expand your previous education and experience, in a flexible and research-intensive environment. This program builds on the education foundation obtained from your diploma, and develops an in-depth knowledge of health sciences and the theory base required for further studies, or careers in a range of health disciplines. 

Additionally, you may choose to structure your elective courses to study in other program areas such as public health or adult education.

This program is available entirely online, making it easier to create academic schedules to accommodate full-time employment.

 


I chose Ontario Tech University because I was not only impressed with the programs, but I also enjoyed the environment as a whole. Throughout my degree, I still enjoyed utilizing the physical spaces on campus by walking on the track with my friends and taking yoga classes outside in the summer.
