Admission Records Analysis For Size and Prior Injury, and Development of Streamlined Admissions Tool
By Nicole Simon, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre ; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Community Based Research, The research conducted for the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre was completed with the purpose of understanding the dangers that the turtle population of Ontario faces. Spatial analysis was conducted on the 2016 intake records for the OTCC. This analysis was completed using ArcGIS 10.1 which allowed the construction of a number of maps to be completed. A literature review was conducted outlining the different methodologies used to assign turtles to age categories. Within the literature review other wildlife Centres were contacted to obtain information on how they perform age categorization. These methods were compared to the OTCC and it was discovered that the best method would be to track turtles from hatchling, but this is not always possible. Analysis of the intake records were then completed with the goal of determining size by species and prior injury data. The size by species analysis yielded numerous graphs depicting the average size by species as well as age, and sex. Unfortunately, there was not enough data available to make usable inferences on prior injury data. This information would be crucial for maintaining mitigation or even implementing it. A task of the project included developing a digital intake tool to allow for more consistent record keeping. The completion of the digital intake tool now includes a separate section for prior injury to allow for prior injury analysis to be conducted.

Accessibility in Downtown Peterborough Businesses
By Kathleen Walkter & Shannon Shillinglaw, Completed for: Big IDeA; Supervising Professor: Mark Skinner; Trent Community Research Centre, GEOG 4030 -, This summary is a synthesis of our project and the main outcomes we have discovered through our research. The attitudes and decisions of Downtown Peterborough Business Owners in relation to disability accessibility and inclusion were explored. We conducted our study on the stores that were accessible from the sidewalk on George and Charlotte Street. Our research design consisted of a literature review of accessibility legislation and scholarly sources to help inform and analyze our research. We conducted a stakeholder consultation with the Council for Peoples with Disabilities to hear their perspectives and experiences with Downtown Peterborough businesses. Thirty-six surveys from a variety of Downtown Peterborough businesses were collected and interviews with four business owners were conducted. Through our research design we were able to determine many findings about accessibility in Downtown Peterborough.

A view through the eyes of John Ball
This paper outlines why Canadian Occupational Health and Safety Policy (specifically "Bill 70" passed in 1978) was ineffective at preventing health and safety violations from occurring at a local industrial manufacturer in the city of Peterborough, Ontario between the late 1970s and mid-1980s. It begins with a review of the current literature regarding the history of OHS Policy and its impact in Ontario., Abstract -- List of key words that can be used to search for the report in an electronic database -- Acknowledgements -- Final report -- Appendix -- Bibliography., By: Patarapa Padungpat., Completed for: Occupational and Environmental Health Coalition, Peterborough; Supervising Professor: James Struthers, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-Based Education., Includes bibliographic references., CAST 4770 - Studies in Canadian Social Policy.
