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.

Student testimonials

Our students know best! Here are some examples of what they have to say about their choice to study in our health sciences faculty programs.

“Choosing Ontario Tech, among many universities to continue my education in post RPN program, was the best choice I could make to pursue my goals and dreams. From the convenient technology-based courses, state-of-the art facilities, and enthusiastic, knowledgeable,  supportive staff and faculty members to the great sense of community within the programs, Ontario Tech has exceeded my expectations. Professors and staff members have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide us with a unique, personalized, and exquisite experience.  I have grown immensely as a student, leader, and citizen since the beginning of this program through the opportunities provided for me by the school and I am forever grateful for that.” - Bahar Karbalaei, Nursing (Post RPN), class of 2013
