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.

Websites to explore and bookmark as an Ontario Tech Student

September 17, 2021

It can be overwhelming the number of resources and websites there are to keep track of upon starting university. I know I was definitely overwhelmed. Here are the websites I use the most and personally have bookmarked on my computer!


MyCampus is where you can view your tuition account balance, see your class schedule, set up your Ontario Tech email account, and so much more!

 Visit MyCampus



Canvas is where your course materials such as assignments, lectures, quizzes etc. will be posted.



Important dates and deadlines

This link is one I check particularly often because it outlines all the important dates for the semester including when tuition fees are due, the last day to drop classes, when reading week is, when the final exam period runs, etc.

Course descriptions 

This page is especially helpful during course registration! I like to check it out if there’s a course I have to take or I’m interested in taking but I’d like a little synopsis of it beforehand.

The Student Life Portal

The Student Life Portal is a great place to check for workshop times and offerings, book peer-tutor appointments, update your student experience record, and so much more!



 Student Life

The Student Life page lays out many of the services offered at Ontario Tech!

Ontario Tech Library 

The library website is helpful for research resources, citation guides, but the most fun of all, it’s how you can book a study room on campus!



The Digital Community

Since you’re here, you probably already know that this is our student blog written by students, for students. At every stage in my university career, I’ve benefited from visiting the Digital Community. It’s a great resource to hear student perspectives on what university life is truly like!
