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.

Radiation Safety Program

Any work with radioactive materials or radiation-emitting devices that fall under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act enforced by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) or the Ministry of Labour (MOL) regulations must conform to the the university's Radiation Safety Program.

The university's Radiation Safety Committee is the regulatory committee responsible for the oversight of the Radiation Safety Program, which includes X-ray safety and the Laser Safety Program. The programs ensure all activities with ionizing and non-ionizing radiation are conducted in a safe manner and in compliance with the Act, CNSC and MOL regulations, and applicable standards and guidelines. 

The program is administered by the Certified Radiation Safety Officer, and is designed to protect staff, students and the public from potential exposure to radiation from radioactive sources and radiation emitting devices. Furthermore, the radiation safety program controls the release of radioactive materials into the environment.
