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 experience

UOIT North Campus Library

 

Our expertise lies in applying social science research methodology and analytical techniques to real-world projects. When necessary, we consult with subject matter experts to assist with project planning and execution.

Our centre has worked on a significant number of projects in recent years. Industries we've worked with include community-based organizations, not-for-profits, municipal/regional government, and more. We are happy to consult with any organization regarding potential research. 

Quite often, we are asked about the topics we cover. During a consultation, we discuss the needs of the organization present and what they are looking for in their research. Topics we have covered in the past include: academic research, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, housing, poverty, workforce, charity, and general business surveying. 

If you are unsure of whether we would be able to serve your needs, please get in touch with us at socialresearchcentre@ontariotechu.ca or 905.721.3092, and we would be happy to consult with you regarding potential projects.
