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.

Graduate diploma requirements
Students in the graduate diploma program must complete four courses in the field of Education and Digital Technologies for a total of 12 credits. Course options are included below. The four courses must be completed within a three-year period with a minimum passing grade of B-minus in each course.
Students who have completed the graduate diploma program and wish to be considered for admission to the MEd can have up to six of the 12 credits counted toward the master’s degree. Students who are currently enrolled in the graduate diploma program and wish to switch to the MEd may apply for admission. If an offer of admission is granted, they may transfer all of their credits from the diploma program to the master’s degree. In this case, they would not receive the graduate diploma. Students who have completed UOIT’s MA or MEd, or an equivalent program, and wish to enrol in the graduate diploma program may transfer up to six credits toward the diploma, depending on the courses they have taken in their master’s program.
