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.

Page templates

Page templates determine what fields you can view and edit in the CMS page editor. Most sites use one of the two primary page templates in the CMS: Standard page and Global page.

If your site was created prior to Fall 2019, your site most likely has the Standard page template. If your site was created afterwards, or if you've made a special request, then your site will have the Global page template. The available page components are generally the same between the two templates; the major difference is that the Global page offers more flexibility in the number and order of components on a page. The Global page is also a merger of the former Standard and Home page templates—you can put 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) 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.

There are other common templates in the CMS. Examples include:
