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.

Health and dental insurance

The student health and dental plan is provided through the Student Union and is available for all full-time domestic students. If you have other coverage, you can use the student insurance in co-ordination with your current plan to increase coverage, or you can opt out of the health and dental portion of the plan. Health and dental ancillary fees and the Legal Protection Program are the only fees you can opt out of—all other ancillary fees are compulsory. 

If you are opting out, you must meet the following deadlines to be eligible for the refund:

  1. The deadline for all fees, which must be paid in full to your tuition account—including your health and dental fee.
  2. The deadline to opt out of the health and dental plan online.

You have the following opt-out or opt-in options:

  • Health plan only
  • Dental plan only
