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.

Sample academic and co-op work term sequence

Ontario Tech provides the flexibility to pursue co-op and other experiential opportunities in a way that fits individual education goals. Full-time undergraduates can complete a minimum of three four-month co-op workterms in four and a half years.

NOTE: there are multiple possible schedules, and not all entering students will follow the following particular examples. Students will work with their academic departments and co-op coordinators to customize a schedule that best suits their goals and aspirations.

Normally, co-op work terms last 16 weeks. However, to suit the needs of the employer and the students, these dates can sometimes be adjusted when the contract is signed. Changes to the official dates require the consent of the Co-op Office. See Academic Program webpages to view their academic and co-op work term sequence.
