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 with laptops in a classroom

Health care is a dynamic and rapidly growing sector requiring not only frontline providers; health administration professionals will help address current and emerging health care challenges and needs. Bachelor of Health Administration (BHA) graduates will be prepared to work in areas of operations, management, finance, and planning in a variety of healthcare sectors and fields.

Healthcare policy supports the development of an integrated health system that addresses health needs, improves patient outcomes across the lifespan and increased efficiencies. Healthcare is envisioned as a continuum of care, where the site of care and its delivery will be supported by community agencies, primary care clinics, and health institutions.
