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.

Brandfolder media database

Brandfolder is our online Digital Asset Management tool. It contains our online photo database and official brand assets.

Asset version control
Images and files that are uploaded to Brandfolder are published and hosted on external Brandfolder servers. These assets are tracked by the Brandfolder system; if asset versions change (assets get moved, renamed, or updated) within Brandfolder, any 
direct online links to these assets will automatically get updated. Using direct links is the preferred method of embedding Brandfolder assets in online applications such as websites.

The Brandfolder system also tracks asset usage, including number of downloads and where assets are being used (if direct online links were used). We can set asset expiration dates as well so that links will automatically be disabled after a specified date.

Advanced search and tagging
Brandfolder uses advanced AI technology to automatically tag all assets with keywords. You can search for specific assets in Brandfolder using common keywords and phrases, like 'students on campus', or you can browse by folder/label, like 'Faculty of Business & IT' or 'headshots'.

To access Brandfolder, visit the link below and login using the Ontario Tech University SSO option and enter your Banner ID and network password. If you are not a university employee, you can request access on the login page.


If there is a specific photo that you are looking for which is not available online, or if you have any problems accessing the database, contact us.
