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.

Leading-edge Ontario Tech University research profiled on

International interest continues to grow in the Artemis project

The Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has posted a profile of the Artemis research project on its website. Vital signs: Making sense of life-saving data for premature babies tells the story of the remarkable research being led by Ontario Tech University's Dr. Carolyn McGregor, associate dean, Research, Faculty of Business and Information Technology, and Canada Research Chair in Health Informatics, Dr. McGregor is also cross-appointed to Ontario Tech University's Faculty of Health Sciences.

International interest and attention continue to grow in Artemis, a first-of-its-kind neonatal health informatics research project that Dr. McGregor is leading at Ontario Tech University with IBMThe Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario and other partners around the globe. The research is helping make sense of the constant stream of data collected from critically ill premature babies so that doctors in the future will be able to better recognize subtle changes in a patient's condition. With physicians having the information they need to intervene more quickly, there is a great hope for reducing mortality rates in premature babies here in Canada and around the world.
