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.

Global page template

The Global page template merges the former Standard and Home page templates. The global page template applies to sites in the CMS created after Fall 2019, or if you've made a special request for your site.

The Global page template is split up into sections (rows) of content. For each section, you can choose a different component, such as accordions or tabs. You can also place components that were formerly restricted to home pages, such as a news feed module, on any page, whether it is the home page, an internal/inside page, or a landing page.

Eventually, all standard sites (sites without custom templates) that currently use the two separate standard and home page templates will be upgraded to use the global page template. In the meantime, if your site currently has the standard or home page templates and you're interested in using the global page, contact us.

Page layout options

The global page template has two page layout options: Standard and Expanded. The options affect the width of the main content area.
