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.

Get Volunteers


Ambassadors are volunteer student leaders who have participated in training that promotes communication skills, leadership development, customer service and inclusivity. Students are also trained in representing the university and promoting on-campus services. If you have an upcoming event that needs student volunteers, you are encouraged to request assistance through the Ambassador Program.

Events that Ambassadors have provided volunteer support in the past are: Open house, faculty-specific events, donor/advancement events and community events happening at the university.

We encourage you to request Ambassadors four weeks in advance of your event. Ambassadors will be contacted once the request form has been submitted. You will receive a list of ambassadors who have registered to volunteer. You will then be responsible for providing the Ambassadors with the information they need to successfully support your event.
