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.

Discover Engineering Weekend

Have you decided that you want to study Engineering?  Are you thinking about attending Ontario Tech University? If yes, you’re invited to attend our Women in Engineering Discover Engineering weekend.  This overnight program will give you a personal glimpse of our campus and you’ll meet our current women in engineering students, and engineering faculty and staff.  Participants will also have participate in engineering design activities, a scavenger night, and social activities.

Our undergraduate women in engineering (WiE) students have been hard at work to design the best virtual visit ever, connecting future engineering students with our current WiE students, sharing about the campus, and answering all the questions you might have about what to expect in university.  

Registration for the Discover Engineering Weekend is now closed. Check back later for more information or email ellen.james@ontariotechu.ca.
