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.

Content management system (CMS)

A CMS is an online application that allows individuals to better manage their website content, without prior knowledge of coding or design principles. Web content is updated and formatted using a familiar text editor, similar to word processing programs.

We create most of the university’s websites within a set of standard templates that are fully accessible, AODA-compliant and aligned with our brand guidelines, using a CMS.

Using a universal approach to web design ensures that we effectively communicate our message and brand while providing website visitors with a consistent user experience. 

Benefits of using the university’s CMS include:

  • Opportunity for content editors to preview fully their websites before publishing changes to a live audience.
  • Implement workflows that enable an approval process for pages and content to ensure to ensure accuracy, professionalism and consistency.
  • Access to previous versions of web pages including deleted pages.
  • Access to all public assets (e.g. documents and images) to reduce content duplication.
