Treaties Recognition Week

Braiding Our Past, Present and Future

Treaties Recognition Week is recognized annually during the first week of November and is meant to honour the treaties agreed to between Indigenous nations and the Crown in right of Ontario over the last 250 years. Understanding the spirit and intent of treaty relationships is important for building new relationships of mutual respect and benefit between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.  

Join us as we host a series of treaty awareness events that aim to provide insights into the significance of treaty rights across Turtle Island. This annual week serves as a platform for acknowledging the spirit and intent of treaties, fostering understanding among students and educating the Ontario Tech campus community about treaty rights and relationships.
