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.

Campus Ice Centre to become COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

Ontario Tech University is proud to partner with Durham College, the Regional Municipality of Durham and Durham Region Public Health (DRPH) to support our community in its fight against COVID-19.

As part of its COVID-19 vaccination rollout plan, Durham Region and DRPH have selected the Campus Ice Centre (CIC) at Ontario Tech University and Durham College as the Region’s Oshawa COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic location.

One ice pad at the CIC will remain open for student, faculty, staff and community member recreational use (by appointment/rental).
