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.

Ontario Tech researcher part of first-ever private research mission to international space station


Axiom Space embarked on the first ever fully private space mission to the International Space Station(ISS). Four astronauts including one Canadian (Mark Pathy) conducted a wide range of experiments over 10 days during Axiom Mission 1(Ax-1). Pathy partnered with multiple Canadian universities for various research projects during the mission.

Computer science and health analytics expert Dr. Carolyn McGregor, AM conducted wearable health analytics research using the Artemis Big Data platform she developed. The data collected from the astronauts' Bio-Monitors is organized in a database to be analyzed by scientists in space and on the ground, both during and after space missions. The Bio-monitor includes a biometric compression shirt, a headband and a tablet for the astronaut to view their own vitals.
