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.

Despite not joining together on the golf course this year, Roger Anderson's legacy continued with the 2021 Virtual Regional Chair's Classic silent auction.

Thanks to the generous donations from sponsors, donors and proceeds from the auction, more than $150,000 was raised in support of students in financial need at Ontario Tech University and Durham College, as well as programs at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.

Karim Mamdani, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences; Dr. Steven Murphy, President and Vice-Chancellor, Ontario Tech University; and Don Lovisa, President, Durham College, were on hand for the cheque presentation and to provide their gratitude on behalf of their respective institutions.

In total, more than $6.9 million has been raised since the tournament's inception.
