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.

Fall/Winter Course Offerings

Fall 2020 Course Information

It is anticipated that physical distancing directives, including the need to minimize large crowd gatherings, will remain in the early fall if not the full year. Given the need to communicate early and to be consistent through the full academic year, we have moved to a blended approach with limited in-person campus presence.  

What you can expect as we look ahead to your 2020-2021 academic year

Online channels will deliver both real-time and recorded lectures, as well as course material and a wide range of academic content carefully curated by your professors to enhance your learning experience. We’ve planned much more than online learning―we’ll leverage modern, digital platforms such as our new Canvas Learning Management System, Kaltura Video Cloud, program-specific software and applications, as well as intuitive digital student experiences through a new MyCampus site and enhancements to our Ontario Tech mobile app.

In-person learning experiences will be offered as appropriate and in accordance with public health guidelines. Health and safety will remain a primary consideration in determining what is feasible on a course-by-course basis. Our focus will be on delivering in-person experiential-learning opportunities in areas that are more challenging to transition online, such as labs, simulations and practicums. Research activities, including graduate student projects, will be offered to the extent possible. We’re also preparing in the event that physical distancing directives will remain in the early fall, and possibly beyond.
