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.

Social media

Social media provides a fun, free, creative and personal way to connect with individuals from many different audiences.

Social media increases access to, and awareness of, the excellent research, teaching, learning and community outreach conducted at the university. Faculty members can also use social media to enhance the classroom experience for students (e.g. stream events through Facebook live or connect with other groups for discussion).

Incorporating social media engagement into the university’s overall communications portfolio enables us to more effectively tell compelling stories from across our vibrant campus, engage in conversations with others about the excellent opportunities available at the university, and support our motto to challenge, innovate and connect.

Specifically, social media can help us:

  • advance knowledge
  • build support
  • collaborate on new ideas
  • create and nurture relationships
  • participate in important conversations
  • raise awareness
  • share information
