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.

What is a Co-op?

A co-op degree gives you a distinct advantage that will assist your prospects for employment after graduation or for being readily accepted into graduate school. Studies have shown that university students who graduate with a co-op degree have lower debt loads, are employed faster and have higher starting salaries.

Ontario Tech University has developed strong partnerships with leading employers in Durham Region, Ontario and beyond to allow you to connect with experts in the field and gain hands-on, real-world experience.

  • One co-op term is four months long.
  • Complete a minimum of three co-op terms to earn the Co-operative Education Designation on your degree.
  • You can complete up to a maximum of five terms/placements in your undergraduate program.
