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.

Government aid

Many students rely on government-funded student loans to assist them with the costs of post-secondary education. If you are an Ontario resident, you might be eligible for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). By submitting a single OSAP application, you will be considered for federal and provincial loans and grants.

Funding is available for both full-time and part-time students:

  • If you are taking three classes or more per term, complete the full-time OSAP application.
  • If you are taking one or two classes per term, complete the part-time OSAP application.
  • If you are a student with a permanent disability, you can be considered a full-time student while taking two classes per term.
