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.

February 22, 2023: Media Release and Public Announcement About The Subcritical Assembly Project

We are excited to have made the public announcement about the proposed Subcritical Assembly Project at the CNA Conference 2023 during the Canadian Association of Nuclear Host Communities Meeting!

Dr. Kirk Atkinson provided the prestigious group with a presentation on how Ontario Tech University helps drive economic development in their communities.  Importantly, we offer host communities a resource for independent validation through the use of our high-tech facilities.  The proposed Subcritical Assembly will be an important tool to support host communities through talent development and upskilling, research and innovation, and collaborative engagement.
