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.

Peer-To-Peer Training

While the university anticipates providing the majority of its academic programming through online channels for the fall and winter semesters, students will continue to have everything they need for a well-rounded university experience. Online channels will deliver both real-time and recorded lectures, as well as course material and a wide range of academic content. This will enhance the educational experience while maximizing flexibility so students can balance their personal schedules, jobs and family demands with learning.

Our group of trained support students are here to help you get the most out of online learning. They offer training and support for our online platforms, including Canvas, Kaltura, and Google Meet. Check out each platform below to learn more and to access training and support resources, or go directly to the Peer-to-Peer Training Schedule to view scheduled training sessions and drop-ins for students.
