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.

Photography and video

Photos and videos are powerful tools you can use to educate, inspire and motivate people to action. Use the following tips and tools to create compelling visual content that engages the university's diverse audiences and communicates our key messages and priorities:


Professional-looking photos build brand trust and reinforce reputation. The great news is that you don't need a professional photographer or fancy equipment for every single photo shoot. Most smartphones will take high-quality photos that will work well for social media posts, university news stories or websites.


  • Follow the video guidelines on Brand Central to ensure your videos reinforce the university's brand and include all required elements. 
  • When shooting video, it's always wise to capture supplemental 'b-roll' footage. This extra footage can be spliced together with your main footage to support your story or further illustrate a point. B-roll that features the university brand can also be shared with media outlets when they need footage for a news story about the university. Read these tips on how to capture great b-roll
