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.

stripesFebruary is Black History Month 

Each February is Black History Month in Canada. This is a month to recognize the contributions Black Canadians have made to our history and culture.

The theme for Black History Month in 2023 is: “Ours to tell”. It represents an opportunity to engage in open dialogue and a commitment to learning more about the stories Black communities in Canada have to tell about their histories, successes, sacrifices and triumphs.

The Library has curated a virtual collection of books and videos, exploring Black innovations, amplifying Black voices, and honouring Black achievements.

There is also a wide variety of films and documentaries from different streaming platforms that celebrate Black stories from both Kanopy and the National Film Board of Canada.

The Office of Student Life hosts a number of events and discussion groups that focus on equity and inclusion. These initiatives provide opportunities for students to share ideas, find community, learn from one another and promote a culture of empathy across the university.
