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.

Good nutrition goes a long way in helping university students stay focused and maintain energy levels in class and while studying.

A recent agreement between the University of Ontario Institute of Technology’s Shop SIRC and Tuck Shop, and The Pantry at the Durham College (DC) Centre for Food, will help students make healthy eating a priority. 

Shop SIRC (located in the Software and Informatics Research Centre at the university’s north Oshawa location) and the Tuck Shop (61 Charles Street Building, first floor) now sell freshly prepared items including salads, sandwiches, breakfast items and single-serving meals made by The Pantry. The selection will vary depending on the seasonal availability of ingredients.

-Steven Murphy, President and Vice-Chancellor, University of Ontario Institute of Technology
