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.

The Library Team and I are excited to welcome students, staff and faculty back to our North Oshawa  Library this fall. We’ve been working closely with our health & safety and operations colleagues to ensure everyone’s Library experience is a safe one.  Following public health COVID-19 guidelines:

  • there is reduced seating capacity throughout the building
  • masks are required for all students, staff and faculty
  • signage has been posted throughout to ensure physical distancing
  • hand sanitizer stations are available near the elevator on each floor
  • spray cleaner and paper towel are available to clean workspaces before and after use

While our Social Science, Humanities & Education Library at 61 Charles remains closed, please note that our virtual resources and services continue to be available. We would also love to welcome downtown students, staff and faculty in person at our North Oshawa location. Read more about ways we can support you here.

Stay safe!
