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.

 The Office of Research Services (ORS) team is working diligently to maintain full services remotely to the entire research community.

Reminder:

Due to the recent university budget reductions, ORS is continuing to operate with a reduced staff complement in August 2020. If you are interested in applying for funding, please notify research@ontariotechu.ca  as soon as possible and available ORS staff will respond as time permits. 

Services: 

Administrative Review: During July and August, Grants Officers will provide administrative review of new grant applications only, to ensure completeness with agency guidelines and assist with institutional signatures. We advised that researchers engage the ORS as early as possible in planning to submit any grant applications.

Internal Approvals: To ensure internal approvals, including required institutional signatures, can be provided in time, we now require faculty members to provide grant applications and the completed Research Grant/Contract Authorization (RGA) Form a minimum of five business days before the agency deadline. 

 Comprehensive grant reviews will resume after September 1. If you would like a comprehensive review of your proposal, please submit it to the appropriate Grants Officer one month in advance of the agency deadline, or according to the internal deadlines noted below.
