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.

Determine overall recruitment needs

As part of the cyclical academic planning process, the Dean submits a summary of the faculty’s annual hiring needs to the Office of the Provost. Since recruiting new faculty members is more than just replacing individuals who have resigned or retired with similar incumbents, it is important to define the general requirements (discipline, salary range and startup funds) for each position requested and provide an overall hiring rationale linked to the faculty’s strategic priorities.

Gain approval

Each year, the Office of the Provost conveys approved appointment allocations (including salary range and startup funds), pending budget approval, to the Dean and Human Resources. While replacement or new positions related to retirements, restructuring, growth or new programs are anticipated and planned, circumstances may require changes to the list of approved appointment allocations, pending budget approval. Therefore, prior to any position being posted, the Dean submits a specific hiring request to the Office of the Provost to confirm approval to proceed with the search to fill a position. The hiring request will include detailed supporting rationale based on strategic academic priorities.
