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.

A list of my favourite travel vloggers on Youtube

August 26, 2021

Ever since the pandemic started, I got the weirdest urge to watch travel vlogs on Youtube. This is probably because the season of quarantining has been extremely isolating. Fasten your seat belts, sit back, relax, and enjoy as we travel the world (from our homes) through these amazing travel vlogs. 

Kara and Nate 

Kara and Nate are couple goals! They started their journey in 2016 with the goal of travelling to 100 countries by 2020… and they did it! They were the first travel vlog channel I came across and I immediately connected with their channel and went down a rabbit hole of a bunch of their videos. They are such a great pair and always put out adventurous content for their viewers to enjoy. 

Lost LeBlanc 

From what I’ve seen of Lost LeBlanc’s channel, his videos are much more than just travel vlogs. At times they’re almost like immersive cultural experiences. As well, he will often include information on the history of the places he’s visiting which is really neat!  

Haylsa & Kyle 

Everything looks so picturesque in Haylsa and Kyle’s vlogs. I like that their vlogs are a mixture of behind-the-scenes or on-the-go content as well as beautiful video montages of their travel destinations and experiences!

Jack Morris 

Jack is so talented! Seeing his Holi vlog in India made me want to visit that much more! India is such a beautiful country and it has been heartbreaking to hear the devastating effects that the pandemic has had on its citizens. Help India Breathe, UNICEF, Indian Red Cross Society, and many others are coming together to support India in its time of need. 

Nic Morley 

Nic’s videos are shorter in duration but WOW. I love his channel because each travel film is cinematically stunning. If Nic’s videos are this beautiful imagine how much more breathtaking these sites are in person!

The Try Guys 

Lately, I’ve been watching The Try Guys a lot. They’re lots of fun and I love all of their videos. I especially love their travel videos or where they try the foods of different countries and cultures. They’re always willing to try new things and have an awesome time doing it together which is reflected in their videos. 

Allison Anderson

Allison’s channel is amazing. I think it’s so empowering that she takes solo trips. She captures beautiful visuals and I really appreciate her insightful voiceovers as well as real-time vlog footage!  

For me, when we’re allowed to travel again I can’t wait to visit a cottage. I had my first cottaging experience last year and it was so much fun. I’d love to do it again whenever it is safe too! But, not going to lie, I miss just being out about roaming around in our local stores and attractions.
