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.

Tri-council guidelines

Welcome to the Tri-Council guidelines section. Please note: Tri-Council updates their guidelines annually, so please review this website periodically for updates and or changes.

This list of examples is not exhaustive. If you have questions regarding compliance and eligibility, please contact the Research Accounting Representative for your department or go to the Ontario Tech website.

General principles
  • Grant funds must contribute toward the direct costs of the research for which the funds were awarded.
  • The funds must be used effectively and economically, and the expenses must be essential for the research for which the funds were awarded.
  • Additional eligible and non-eligible expenses specific to a program are detailed in the agency's program literature.

In the presence of both an agency and an institutional policy, the agencies require compliance with the involved agency policy, recognizing that grantees may also have to comply with institutional policies.
