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.

Training Modules

We will ensure that all of our employees are trained and familiar with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the Integrated Accessibility Standards and how the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) works with the AODA. We endeavor to communicate with our community by considering the diverse abilities of all community members.

All faculty and instructors (including full-time and limited-term faculty members, academic associates, sessional instructors, teaching assistants, research assistants and invigilators) must complete the Ontario Tech Accessible Instruction Module for Educators (if you haven’t done so within the last six months). The module takes approximately 40 minutes.
