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.

Digital Community Crew

Faculty of Social Science and Humanities

Hello, my name is Angelique! I am currently a third-year student in FSSH under the Political Communication specialization with a minor in Criminology and Justice. I am a very active member on campus as I am apart of Ambassadors, Equity Advocates, Peer Leaders, Peer Note Taker, and now - Digital Community Crew! You may also see me around campus giving tours to future Ontario Tech students as an Office of the Registrar Tour Guide. When I am not on campus, you can find me playing Pokemon Go in the heart of Downtown Oshawa, attached to my laptop engaging in digital activism, or my nose in the latest R.L Stine book. Born and raised here in Oshawa, I have a deep appreciation and love for my city. I strive to educate myself to help uplift the rest of my community.
