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.

How do I clone a previous application?

If you need to create a new application that is significantly similar to a recent application you previously saved or submitted, you can clone the previous application to save time. Note: The application must be the same type (e.g. application for ethical review, secondary use of data, multi-jurisdictional review, etc.).

Here are the steps to clone an application:

  1. Find the application you would like to clone from the quicklinks on the IRIS home page.
  2. Select the Clone button (see Figure 1).
  3. Select which tabs you would like to clone (see Figure 2). The Common Questions tab contains the application-specific subtab and application questions, and in most cases should be selected (see Figure 2).
