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.

Black History MonthBlack History Month 

February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate the legacies of Black Canadians. This year’s theme is “Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build”. It represents the opportunity to honour the rich past and present contributions and accomplishments of Black people in Canada, while aspiring to embrace new opportunities for the future.

The Library has curated a virtual collection of books and videos, highlighting those who use their talents to uplift, speak the truth, and inspire.

Both Kanopy and the National Film Board of Canada have a selection of films and documentaries to celebrate Black stories.

Ontario Tech University celebrates Black History Month with a variety of virtual and in-person events, initiatives and resources that highlight Black Canadian culture, promote an awareness of history, and provide an open space for conversations.
