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

Engineering Outreach is proud to develop a program specifically for Indigenous Youth. It is clear there are additional barriers and struggles that youth of colour face as they move through their educational pathway; the program have been developed by Indigenous STEM Students and provides Indigenous youth with a community-oriented and accessible learning environment to explore different areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as well as coding, and engineering design. The curriculum for these programs is aligned to the Ontario Curriculum in the areas of science, technology and mathematics. We are pleased to offer the program at no cost to families with the generous support of Actua and the Government of Canada’s CanCode program.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our programming for the 2021/2022 school year will be running virtually.
