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.

Evites and e-newsletters

E-newsletters are appropriate if you are sending templated emails to a user mailing list on a regular basis. In complying with Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation, all email communications must include automatic subscription management (e.g. one-click to unsubscribe).

E-newsletters should be sent using an online email service with built-in mailing list subscription management, such as Mailchimp . We can assist with creating branded templates within the email service so you can easily create your own newletters.

You can request evites and e-newsletter templates and accounts via the Project Initiation form.
