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.

It is anticipated that physical distancing directives, including the need to minimize large crowd gatherings, will remain in the early fall if not the full year. Given the need to communicate early and to be consistent through the full academic year, we have moved to  a blended approach with limited in-person campus presence. The focus will be on offering required course components, including action-oriented experiential learning activities (e.g., labs, simulations, research practicums, etc.).  Research activities, including graduate student projects, will be maximized to the extent possible. The remainder of the courses will be offered through quality online interactions.

Visit the Fall/Winter Course Offerings page for more information and to view in-person and online courses.
