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.

Pitch Black

FREE in school Grade 9 Electricity workshop!

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Ontario Tech University is proud to be running our 2nd annual Pitch Black program. In this FREE workshop, Ontario Tech engineering students will work with grade 9 science classes in a 60-75 minute session, restoring power to a breadboard community after a power outage. Using basic electrical components, students will work collaboratively together to light up the circuit and get power operational to the community. Through this experience, students will be engaged to consider a future in engineering while learning about electrical circuits and electricity in a hands-on environment. Our engineering volunteers will provide insight into their engineering studies at Ontario Tech while assisting the students in creating functional circuits.

We do not currently have any Pitch Black workshops scheduled. Check back later for Spring 2020 dates.
