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.

Go CODE Girl

Go CODE Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls in grades 7-10 across Ontario to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development and discover opportunities in computing and engineering fields.

Why is this necessary?

Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world. This includes everything from smart machines, to our communication systems to the cars we drive. Coding is the ability to read and write in a language that a computer can understand so that you can instruct a computer how to perform complex tasks. Learning to code can lead to increased digitalconfidence, a different way of thinking about problems and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline. 

Go CODE Girl will educate, inspire and equip girls with the digital skills, confidence, and resources needed to pursue an education in technology, computing, and engineering. Careers in technology, computing, and engineering are the fastest growing industry.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the 2020/2021 school year, all of our programming will be running virtually.
