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.

External Funding

Additional calls for funding proposals are often issued. We encourage researchers to contact their Grants Officer about emerging opportunities to determine what best suits their needs.

Industry-Relevant Collaborative Research

In addition to being a well-established path to research funds, conducting collaborative research with industry partners can be a great opportunity to work on projects with a direct and meaningful impact on the broader community. We play a principal role in ensuring the university, researchers and intellectual property are protected in research contracts. Programs include:

Development Of Intellectual Property Or Knowledge Mobilization

A number of funding streams are available that are specifically related to commercializing IP. In most cases, access to these funds is restricted to projects managed by the ORS. The ORS has to be directly involved in writing grant applications, commercialization and intellectual property protection plans, providing supporting documentation and ensuring that milestones are met. The following is an introduction to some programs. Please check this section frequently; new programs will be added as we learn about them.

A variety of programs exist to support enriched experience for students to carry out research programs with industry partners as part of their training.

Funding: MITACS Globalink Research Award (GRA) International Partners Stream
