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.

Record number of students explore potential career opportunities at Job Fair


Hundreds of students and alumni from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), Durham College and Trent University; and more than 55 organizations and 100 recruiters came together in the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre (CRWC) for the annual Job Fair. All employers who attended the February 6 event were in a position to hire full-time, contract, summer, part-time or internship-based new staff within the next six months.

“We are committed to supporting students with their job search and the Job Fair provides students with an opportunity to network with employers in Durham Region, the Greater Toronto Area and beyond,” said Monica Aggarwal, Manager, Career Centre, UOIT. “Students are always looking ahead to their careers and the Job Fair provides a forum where they have an opportunity to explore career options and the qualifications for available positions.”

UOIT’s Career Centre teams up with the Career Services department at Durham College to host the Job Fair – a full-campus event that encourages attendance from students at both institutions.

Students who weren’t able to attend the Job Fair can use the online guidebook to follow up with employers to discuss opportunities available through their organizations. Further information is also available on the UOIT Career Centre website.
