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.

Update 4: September 2, 2020

Mask/face covering protocols and accommodations

As we prepare for a limited number of students, faculty and staff to participate in on-campus activities in the fall semester, please remember the university now requires everyone on campus to wear a mask or face covering while inside campus buildings.

Masks/face coverings must be worn in all indoor campus spaces where more than one individual is present, including while seated in a classroom, and in all common areas and labs. Medical masks are not required. See acceptable alternatives to medical masks.

The university recognizes some students, faculty and staff may require accommodations. We are committed to an accommodation process in which individualized needs (e.g., on the grounds of a medical condition) are thoroughly considered. If you believe you require accommodation or alternatives to wearing a mask/face covering, please email the contacts below before arriving on campus

Our ability to provide a safe on-campus experience depends upon each member of the university community doing their part for our collective health and safety. Thank you for your co-operation.
