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.

How it works

Central Stores uses Retail Management Hero and point-of-sale system. Once authorized users create an account, they start shopping at the store. All charges are applied to the account number the budget holder has provided. No other forms of payment are accepted.

The store billing cycle is closed at the end of each month. Journal vouchers that include all sales transactions related to both operating and research accounts are sent to finance where the expenses are drawn from individual accounts. Once the journal vouchers have been posted in the FAST Financial Reporting System, the payment is processed against your store account. Statement and payment copies along with a detailed purchasing report are sent to the account holder through inter-office mail.
