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.

Planning and Project office


Space planning

The OCIS space planning team provides space management, space planning and data management for the university. Working alongside the university community, we advise on space standards, co-ordinate on-campus relocations, and maintain the infrastructure database.


The OCIS project office handles a wide variety of project requests involving classrooms, labs, student spaces and administrative spaces. While utilizing the best practices and methodologies of project management, the project team leads and administers infrastructure-based projects from start to finish, helping create and maintain a quality learning and working environment.

Project life cycle

Once OCIS receives a project initiation request, it will be reviewed within the context of the university's strategic priorities and vision.

Approved projects will be sent to the project office. The project office will meet with the requestor to discuss the project initiation in further detail and collaboratively develop a project charter outlining the specific requirements.  This signed agreement will initiate the project.

Throughout the project cycle, OCIS will keep the faculty/department well informed of the project's status and progress. Once the project is completed, OCIS will request a final walk-through with the faculty/department to review and sign off on the project. OCIS welcomes your feedback and asks that you complete a short satisfaction survey to let us know how we did!
