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.

May to August closure of Conlin Road


The City of Oshawa is moving forward with the final phase of the reconstruction of Conlin Road between Founders Drive and just west of Stevenson Road.

To facilitate the final stages of completion, the temporary east-west access along Conlin Road to the Simcoe Street and Stevenson Road intersection, which was opened for the winter months, will be closed starting Monday, May 4. The road is scheduled to re-open Thursday, August 20, barring unforeseen circumstances.

During the closure, local access for residents of Conlin Road will be available from Thornton Road to the west. Local access for residents of Stevenson Road will be available from Taunton Road to the south.

Please exercise caution around the construction site and obey all signage.

The City of Oshawa realizes aspects of this construction work may be disruptive; however, it advises it will make every effort to complete the project as quickly and efficiently as possible.
