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.

Undergraduate student research

In September 2008 the Faculty of Health Sciences launched the fourth-year Research Practicum course. This full-year course provides students with the opportunity to work on a project that has been identified by the research tutor and/or the partner organization. 

The main objectives of the Research Practicum are to provide students with:  

  • A practical and guided experience, which exemplifies aspects of the collaborative research process;
  • Opportunities to apply their knowledge of research methods in an actual research setting; and
  • A positive experience in research collaboration.
