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.

Indigenous Youth Programs

Indigenous Youth STEM Club

indigenous_youth.jpegEngineering Outreach is proud to present its first program specifically for Indigenous Youth during summer 2021. It is clear there are additional barriers and struggles that youth of colour face as they move through their educational pathway; these STEM programs have been developed by Indigenous STEM Students to provide Indigenous youth with role models and a safe space to explore STEM and develop skills critical for the future. 

All of our programs have been designed to introduce youth to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts including engineering design, scientific inquiry and coding. The curriculum for these programs is aligned to the Ontario Curriculum in the areas of science, technology and mathematics. These programs will be open to youth in grades 4 to 9. Please note that all of these programs are completely virtual and will be running via Google Meets. More information will be provided after registratio

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our programming for spring 2021 will be running virtually.
