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.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology

In exercise physiology, researchers study the the acute response and chronic adaptations to exercise for healthy individuals, people with chronic conditions and athletes. Studying the response to different types of exercise in different conditions allows us to maximize health and performance outcomes. For example, athletes have a high prevalence of exercise-induced asthma (EIA). It is particularly prevalent in athletes who exercise in cold-dry climates. By conducting research in ACE, we can better understand why athletes have such a response in cold-dry climates, and help to reduce the EIA symptoms by testing new prevention interventions.

Research areas:

  • acute response to exercise
  • airway physiology
  • cardiorespiratory fitness
  • chronic adaptations to exercise
