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.

A message from the University Librarian
Catherine Davidson

On behalf of the entire Library team, we warmly welcome you -  our students, faculty, and staff -  back to campus and to our Library spaces.  We know these have been incredibly challenging times for everyone and we look forward to a gradual return to a more “normal” campus experience. 

 For those who visit us in person, a gentle reminder that the University’s mandatory masking requirement remains in effect.

For those who are studying remotely, don’t forget that our Library Team is available to support you virtually, through the Ask a Librarian chat service, email, and virtual appointments. 

Thank you for your continued cooperation in keeping our campus spaces safe and our community healthy.

Take care.
