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.

MyStart: Accessibility

MyStart: Accessibility takes place in the summer, before classes start in September.

Parents and Families are invited to attend an information event. Please visit the Parents and Families website for more information.

Each year, Student Accessibility Services invites incoming students with documented disabilities to participate in MyStart: Accessibility. Students who have previously participated in these workshops feel better prepared and are more successful in the first few months of university. In addition to providing an opportunity to meet other new students, this program will help you to understand the real differences between high school and university, learn about self-advocacy and how to use your strengths, and interact with key staff who can provide academic and learning support.

This event is free to all students who are registered with Student Accessibility Services.  Asynchronous course content will be available mid-July in Canvas (link to be provided as part of registration process). Synchronous sessions will take place on Tuesdays in August:

Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from noon to 1 p.m.
Tuesday, August 10, 2021 from noon to 1 p.m.
Tuesday, August 17, 2021 from noon to 1 p.m.
Tuesday, August 24, 2021 from noon to 1 p.m.
