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.

AI4HW Joint Research Centre

AI4HW Canada/Australia

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in AI for Health and Wellness (AI4HW) is a unique collaborative research centre between Ontario Tech University and the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Nowhere else in the world exists a similar innovative advanced prototyping and simulation environment to support next-generation health and wellness solutions.

The AI4HW JRC focuses on creating innovative ways to assess and improve health, wellness, resilience and adaption through world-leading research in:

  • Data analytics, with a focus on Big Data analytics and AI.
  • Internet of Things (the interconnection of Internet-enabled computing devices embedded into everyday objects).
  • Stream computing (the ability to capture and analyze data from multiple sources in real time, and derive insights from that data to make faster and better decisions).
  • Cloud computing (delivery of computing services over the Internet).
  • ‘Serious’ games that simulate real-life experiences, used for practical applications such as teaching.


Collaboration Areas for students at Ontario Tech University

  • Joint international PhD program (known as a ‘cotutelle’).
  • New international research projects involving Ontario Tech’s ACE, along with the faculties of Business and Information Technology; Energy Systems and Nuclear Science; and Health Sciences.
  • Internal summer exchange opportunities and internships for undergraduate students.
  • Postdoctoral fellowship opportunities.
