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.

Rising from COVID-19

Through each phase of our re-open plan, our priority remains the health, safety and well-being of all members of our community. We’ll continue to play our role in stopping the spread of COVID-19, and focusing on quality academic delivery and the student experience.

We are in this together.

“We have all risen to the occasion under extreme circumstances due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for looking out for each other and for your understanding and willingness to step up, to work collaboratively, to support our own community, and to support those individuals and institutions in need. It’s truly impressive how we’ve joined together, from remote locations, to get our students online, secure our university’s physical assets, focus on essential initiatives, continue to provide services in new and innovative ways and make significant contributions to our community, Ontario and Canada. We’ve heard from many students, stakeholders and partners that they are appreciative of the support they have received to date.” Dr. Steven Murphy President and Vice-Chancellor
