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.

  • BELL LET'S TALK DAY SESSION - The Soul at Work: Discovering the Meaning of What You Do

    Date: Wednesday, January 25, 2023
    Time: 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
    Location: In-person, SHA018
    Target Audience: All faculty and staff

    Facilitator: Seth Silver

    This session is a somewhat more reflective and ‘deep’ look at what each person finds meaningful in their lives, and how some of this can be enacted at work. Without reference to any particular religion, views on the purpose of life will be shared in sub-groups, “appreciation lists” will be created, life goals and personal values will be reflected on, and work as a way to make a contribution to the world and feel connected to others will be discussed.
