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.

ELO Promotes Work Placement Program to Employers

April 24, 2020

Are you an employer looking to hire a summer intern? The FSSH Experiential Learning Office (ELO) would like to inform you of an exciting opportunity provided by the Magnet Student Work Placement Program.

The program offers funding in the form of wage subsidies to hire post-secondary students for paid work experience. Through this program, students also benefit from a chance to build skills that can help them secure employment in their fields of study.

Co-founded in 2014 by Ryerson University and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Magnet is a social initiative working towards eliminating unemployment and underemployment among youth and new immigrant populations.

According to the ELO:

“The Magnet Student Work Placement program supports organizations wanting to attract high-quality student interns this summer. Employers are able to access wage subsidies during this difficult time of uncertainty and global pandemic, while students are able to continue to gain work experience in fields related to their programs of study. Our university fully supports virtual internship arrangements where employers and students are able to work remotely.”
