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.

About The Lab

Since the University's inception, the Bachelor of IT program has offered a variety of networking courses. In the beginning, the University had leveraged its partnership with Durham College in order to provide facilities for its networking laboratory classes. After a few years, it became apparent that the growth of the University meant that sharing the Durham College networking lab was no longer appropriate to best serve the needs of our students, and so the Ontario Tech networking lab was officially created.

The Ontario Tech Networking Lab includes a significant investment in state-of-the-art networking equipment that will properly prepare our students for the current and future demands of the IT industry, while ensuring that all of our students have ample hands-on access to real equipment.

The lab is located in room 4130 in the Software and Informatics Research Center (SIRC), which also houses several other state-of-the-art research and teaching labs in computing and information technology. The lab is run by the Faculty of Business and IT, and is dedicated to providing a hands-on networking experience for the students.
