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.

The Ontario Protocol for Traffic Injury Management (OPTIMa) Collaboration
On November 23, 2011, the Ministry of Finance and Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) issued a request for proposal for consulting services for the development of a new treatment protocol for the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the management of traffic injuries. Dr. Pierre Côté and colleagues were awarded the grant. The project ran from July 2012 to December 2015, and the final report* was submitted to FSCO on January 31, 2015. Read more about OPTIMa.
