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.
A minor in Finance is available to students in the university’s Applied and Industrial Mathematics, and Physics programs. Mathematics is a key component of problem solving, from the modelling of atmospheric physics to the complexities of managing risk in financial markets. For instance computational finance focused on the measurement, management and analysis of financial risk, and detailed insight into numerical and computational techniques in the pricing, hedging and risk management of financial instruments. Furthermore, it is well understood and noticed that modern finance is becoming increasingly technical, requiring the use of sophisticated mathematical tools in both research and practice.
Students wishing to take this minor should consult with their academic advisor for suggested program maps.
