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.

Hi! My name is Nora and I am a third year Life Science Student minoring in Forensic Psychology. I am involved in various clubs on campus such as the Ontario Tech Pre-Medical Association, the Ambassadors club, as well as being a Ridgeback Student Voices Crew Member (which may be obvious if you’re reading this). When I’m not on campus, I can sometimes be found volunteering at Lakeridge Heath in the emergency department which I really enjoy. With a relatively busy schedule, I do my best to take the time to do things I love which include going on hikes with my friends, visiting museums and art exhibits, and taking pictures (which you can see on my photography Instagram).
