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.

APMA and Ontario Tech advance Canada’s plan for zero-emissions, alternative fuel vehicle by 2022

Project Arrow

Ontario Tech University was carefully selected by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association to be the lead academic institution for Phase 2 of Project Arrow, the next phase, of the country’s vision to produce an all-Canadian made zero-emissions alternative-fuel vehicle by 2022: a car featuring connected and autonomous tech and the latest in propulsion technology.

As Canadians look down the road to the mid-21st century, the country finds itself at a crossroads in trying to balance climate change realities against future energy choices and challenges related to advanced mobility. Ontario Tech is proud to be a part of Project Arrow and play an important role in advancing Canadian-made technology to combat climate change.
