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.

Adam Dubrowski, Canada Research Chair in Health-Care Simulation, and maxSIMhealth collaborate to enhance simulation training

Ontario Tech University researchers have collaborated to advance simulation training on a global scale by developing 3D modeling and printing and extending reality capabilities. This unique partnership extends beyond the walls of Ontario Tech by joining forces with other local academic, industry, and governmental institutions with the aim to bring these innovations from the lab to the market while translating research into commercialization opportunities, jobs, and investments. 

One of maxSIMhealth’s partnerships is with the Tech Ed Living Lab within Lakeridge Health Hospital. Under this collaboration, health care practitioners and researchers meet and co-create solutions to everyday problems encountered within the health care sector. Graduate students who participate in this research learn entrepreneurial skills and receive incubation support to test commercialization opportunities.
