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.

Equity Admissions

An applicant who considers themselves to be personally and academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond their control may apply to have a separate assessment conducted by the university’s Equity Admissions Committee.

Our committee includes a member from the Faculty of application, the Admissions office, and the President’s Equity Taskforce. The committee will consider the following items when delivering a recommendation for admissibility.

  • Factors identified by an applicant which may have impacted their previous academic performance.
  • An applicant's educational goals and an assessment of contributions they can make to the university community.

You are encouraged to apply if you feel personally or academically disadvantaged for reasons that are beyond your control, such as:

  • disability
  • gender identity
  • visible minority membership

We acknowledge that equity is a concept that governs all people and declaration of membership in a certain group will not be the sole determinant of admissibility. The information contained in the consideration form will be measured alongside other factors including possession of program prerequisites and achievement of the university's minimum grade point average: 70 per cent.

If you would like to be considered under the Equity Admissions Policy, please complete the Equity Admissions Consideration Form.
