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.

Under the new Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the government is moving to a fully accessible Ontario by 2025. At Ontario Tech, this means our buildings, our policies and our learning environment must be accessible as possible in the near future. Although Ontario Tech has already made significant progress in this area, this website will provide the information, tutorials and examples to assist those on campus with further improvements to accessibility.

Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is not just a method of accommodating students who have a disability – it goes far beyond that. It incorporates a variety of strategies and techniques that enable all students to learn and express their learning using an array of methods. One size does not fit all and UDL encourages flexibility in delivery and design of learning so that all students benefit.
