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.

Survey Coordination

The Office of Institutional Research and Analysis would like to strengthen the effectiveness of surveys administered to university constituents (applicants, students, alumni, employees) by providing a coordinating role for survey research on campus. Survey coordination is essential in order to avoid collection of duplicate information, reduce possible survey fatigue by limiting the number and timing of surveys to any one specific group, increase response rates and encourage the communication and sharing of survey results with the campus community.

If you are interested in conducting a survey at Ontario Tech, please send details to oira@ontariotechu.ca. Details should include the purpose and scope of the survey, the population that will be targeted, the survey administration mode (web, email, mail), planned timeframe and the method in which the results will be used and communicated.
