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.

Emergency Service Training

Train and gain experience in the most immersive environmental simulation in North America. Test yourself with highway crash rescues in  a frigid northern blizzard, and learn how to deal with emergency situations in slick freezing rain and the hottest conditions on Earth. You can do all of this in one facility, any day of the year, using ACE's climatic wind tunnel, two climate chambers and its suspension simulation.

ACE can host workshops tailored towards firefighters, paramedics and first responders to better prepare participants for future real-life emergencies. Have your physiological performance measured and analyzed to see how your body reacts to stressful situations, and then learn techniques to help you overcome emergency situations successfully.
