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.

New ordering process for all signage—new and old

Ontario Tech’s previous wayfinding system will be replaced with our new signs as we update the campus over the next few years. To help maintain consistency with the new signage and wayfinding, we’ve developed a new internal signage ordering process and request form. One form will now be used for all signage requests, regardless of the building it will be installed in.

Interior signage order process

Our new wayfinding system takes advantage of a paper insert feature for signs that will typically require updates more often,  making them faster, easier and much more cost-effective while supporting our sustainability efforts on campus. The templates for these new signs can be found here.


  • If you have a signage request, that isn't a paper insert, submit an Interior Signage Order Form.
  • If you need to update the paper insert, please use the templates provided.
  • If naming a lab, provide background information on the funding or agreement supporting the named space along with contact information for the Advancement team involved with the agreement.
  • If the location involves a future renovation or move, this will be considered, however, the request may be denied or included in the future capital project if applicable.
