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.

FuturEng Conference


FutureENG is a one day in-person conference hosted by Engineering Outreach in association with Hydro One. It is tailored towards young women in grades 11 & 12 for the purpose of inspiring them to become future engineers.

In this conference, participants will learn about how to become engineers and why engineering may be right for them. They will learn about the different disciplines of engineering and the possible career paths for each one. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet and network with current Ontario Tech engineering students and hear from professionals in industry. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to meet like-minded peers and perform a hands-on activity related to science, technology, engineering, and math which will give them the chance to put their engineering hard hats and solve problems like an engineer!
