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.

Technology-enriched Learning Environment changes for 2015-2016

Students using laptops in the Business and Information Technology Building

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) has made changes to the Technology-enriched Learning Environment program for the upcoming academic year.

Business-class Dell laptops will be provided to new students and those eligible for a hardware refresh. For more information on the different models, please see the Current learning tool models page on the Information Technology (IT) Services website.

In addition, IT Services has reviewed the technology requirements for individual programs. This has resulted in reduced costs as well as changes to the technology-enriched learning environment fee structure. While there is an overall reduction in fees, some programs with more demanding technology requirements will remain in the same fee category. For detailed information on fees, please see the 2015-2016 fees and refund schedule page.
