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.

NSBE High School Conference

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Ontario Tech University chapter is proud to present an in-person high school conference in collaboration with Engineering Outreach. Developed by Black Ontario Tech University STEM Students and Staff, the conference aims to introduce Grade 9 - 12 students to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and empower them to pursue academic excellence and leadership and build connections in the modern community. 

This is a great opportunity for students to participate in personal development workshops and learn to explore the benefits of STEM education. With an opportunity to interact with Black undergraduate STEM students, participants will get a glimpse of the STEM student experience and potential future STEM careers. Engineering Outreach looks forward to meeting you!
