Gambling in the Community: The Potential Impacts of Casino Development on Social Services in the City of Peterborough
By Karly McCabe, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Community Based Research, With the anticipated development of a new casino in Peterborough, the Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee (HSJCC) is interested in determining the affect that its opening will have on social services within the city. The HSJCC works with individuals that experience mental health and/or addictions struggles and come in contact with the justice system. The HSJCC also coordinates communication between health care, developmental services and the justice system. This research surveyed organizations from Peterborough that would likely be affected by a new casino in the city, including mental health and addictions support, financial support services, the justice system, youth shelters, housing services and family counselling services. Similar organizations were surveyed from Ajax and Belleville, two cities with newly opened casinos. Research shows that social services dealing with addictions and addiction by-products, such as financial stress and relationship difficulties, are expecting an increase in client base or referrals following Peterborough’s casino opening. While all were in agreement of an increased reliance on them, none of the social services in the city have taken measures to prepare for the casino’s opening and the expected increase in clients. Prior to casino development in Belleville a problem gambling counsellor was allocated specifically for the casino’s expected repercussions, and 2% of the profit from the casino was allocated to mental health and addictions research by means of the provincial government. The research concludes by discussing the potential for further research on the topic of casinos and social services, and recommendations for preparation in Peterborough.
