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.

Alumni profiles

 

To increase student engagement, we encourage graduates who have furthered their career through participation in the internship, exchange or capstone programs to relay their experiences. Through their eyes, current and prospective students may get a better understanding of:

  • An overall practical understanding of the program and/or real-work environments.
  • Any tips, suggestions and recommendations.
  • Expectations of both faculty and employers.
  • Past student experiences. 

Exposure to past student success may facilitate in planning and future decision-making, particularly when given a window to view programs through a different lens. Both faculty and students can benefit from the feedback that alumni's experiences offer.
