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.

8.5" x 11" Poster guidelines

Example without our image assets

Where there's no bleed available, such as on a letter-sized poster printed in-office, the Colour Bars shouldn’t be used.

The distinctive margin is scaled down to 0.75" for letter size or smaller pieces.

  • Limit text to small, digestible chunks of information—daunting amounts of type are less likely to be read.
  • Don’t use drop shadows, gradients or other effects on text or design elements.
  • Restrain information hierarchy to three to four levels to maintain clean typography and orderly layouts.
  • Don’t reduce the width of the margins below 0.75".
  • Don’t use Colour Bars where full bleed isn’t possible.
