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.

Research Data Management Survey

In response to the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, the Office of the Vice President, Research and Innovation invited Faculty, Graduate students and Postdoctoral Fellows to complete a Research Data Management Survey in early 2023. The results of the survey are available in both PDF and PowerPoint format. If you require an alternate format, please email us at

The general purpose of the Research Data Management Survey was to gather input from Ontario Tech community members about the following:

  • Current understanding and awareness of the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy requirements.
  • Current data management practices utilized to manage research data.
  • Current and future data management needs and identification of possible gaps in research data management at Ontario Tech.

The Research Data Management Survey results helped inform Ontario Tech’s Institutional Research Data Management Strategy. The strategy, a requirement of the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, will help the Ontario Tech research community to prioritize planning, resourcing and implementation of research data management practices at Ontario Tech. View the university's Research Data Management Implementation Plan for further details.
