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.

Editorial services

The Communications and Marketing department assists with the drafting and editing of university marketing materials (e.g. booklets, viewbooks, pamphlets, evites, posters and digital signage content), ensuring all products follow our editorial style and brand standards. 

We liaise with university faculties and departments to produce and distribute internal communications materials including a weekly newsletter and time-sensitive campus-wide messages and regularly post new content on the university’s main website, edit content on existing pages and microsites, and edit, process and activate items submitted to the event calendar and sub-calendars.

The department also serves as the primary contact for inquiries from news organizations and reporters seeking to connect with the university’s researchers and subject matter experts including offering time-sensitive subject matter expertise to newsrooms on trending or ‘breaking’ news stories. We often take internal story ideas and develop them into news items or feature stories for external audiences. We post these stories in the news section of and/or share with reporters to generate earned media coverage, build relationships with news outlets, and produce regular media focusing on recent news across the university campus.
