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.

Girl Guide Badge Day

Badge Days Banner


This year our Ontario Tech Engineering Outreach Instructors are excited to visit Girl Guide troops from across Durham Region to host Badge Day workshops so Guides and Pathfinders can earn their ONWiE Crest.

These workshops provide a fun opportunity for girls to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through hands-on building or coding activities led by women engineering students. Participants will be encouraged to think creatively and problem solve using engineering design thinking.

Ontario Tech Engineering Outreach is inviting Girl Guide and Pathfinder Unit Leaders to sign up for a virtual or in person Badge Day Workshop! Workshops can include engineering-related topics such as coding, engineering design, electricity, and more. We will work with your unit to set up a workshop that meets your needs.

Girl Guide and Pathfinder groups in Durham Region are invited to sign up for in person workshops to be held in their usual meeting place. All other groups can sign up for virtual workshops to be held on Google Meets.

Note: Only Unit Leaders can submit a registration form. If you are a parent who is interested in the event, please ask your local Girl Guide or Pathfinder group for more information. 

Please email for any questions.
