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.

Summer exchange programs

Ontario Tech University has many opportunities for students who are interested in gaining an international learning experience. 

Depending on the summer program and type of partnership with Ontario Tech, some exchanges are not-for-credit and you must apply to the host institution directly. If an exchange program is for-credit, students must follow all steps listed on the Outbound Exchange page.

Regardless of the exchange program, all students going on international mobility programs---exchange, summer program, internship, research, conference, etc.---are required to complete the pre-departure form and attend a pre-departure session before they leave. Visit our Pre-Departure Sessions page to fill out the form and register for a session.

Below is a list of summer academic exchange opportunities available to students. Please feel free to visit our Partners across the world to view other potential options. For more information about summer exchange programs, contact
