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.

Seed Exchange now open

The Seed Exchange is now open at the campus libraries.

The Seed Exchange has arrived at the Campus Libraries!

Visit the Reference Desk at the North Oshawa Campus Library or the Help Desk at the Social Science, Humanities, and Education Library to see what types of open-pollinated heirloom seeds are available. Seeds can also be picked up at Durham College's Whitby Campus Library (1610 Champlain Avenue, Whitby, Ontario).

Participation is free. Please save you seeds; when you return or donate* seeds to the collection, it allows the project to remain sustainable through future growing seasons.

For more information, pick up a brochure at one of the Libraries or visit the Seed Exchange page on the Library website.

*Note: The Library will accept any seed donation except for corn, soy, canola, rose or controlled-substance seeds.
