Supporting Immigrant Entrepreneurs
By Brieanna Elliot, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: New Canadians Centre ; Supervising Professor: Heather Nicol; Trent Community Research Centre, GEOG4030 - Community Based Research, In partnership with the New Canadians Centre, located in Peterborough, the goal of this research is to find ways to assist immigrants with entrepreneurship which will in turn lead to growth of the economy of the City of Peterborough as a whole. As Canadians, we live in a highly multicultural society in which immigration is the norm. Many of the immigrants that immigrate to Canada choose Peterborough to call their new home. The New Canadians Centre works closely with immigrants in Peterborough to help their transition to the city go as smoothly as possible, while also drawing attention to programs and opportunities in Peterborough that will help with economic, health, along with social needs. Immigrants have established businesses in many cities within Canada, thereby contributing to Canada’s economy, society and culture. The City of Peterborough currently has the highest percentage of immigrant entrepreneurs in Canada; it is therefore especially important to focus on implementing programs in order to better assist new and potential immigrant entrepreneurs in Peterborough to help them to realize their full potential in the community. This research will focus specifically on immigrant entrepreneurship in the City of Peterborough, while drawing from identified best practices of programs and supports available for immigrant entrepreneurs in other communities.

Evaluation of the 2013-2014 Sex Work Action Project (SWAP) in Peterborough, Ontario
By Ryne Evans and Brittany Reid, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: PARN; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Forensic Community-Based Research Project, The purpose of the present project was to evaluate the Sex Work Action Project (SWAP) that ran in Peterborough, Ontario from 2013-2014. The goal of SWAP was to improve the quality of life of street-level sex workers in Peterborough. This project aimed to determine the impact and value of SWAP, and to evaluate the strengths of the program and the improvements that could be made for a future program. Through reviews of relevant literature and similar programs in Canada, it was determined what is required and what makes a sex work support program sustainable and effective. Through in-depth interviews with front-line workers involved in SWAP, the strengths and the challenges of the program were discovered. It was confirmed that a program of this type would be a necessity in Peterborough, but there are notable areas of improvement that are needed for a future program to be successful, including better planning, organization of resources and funding. Combining this knowledge, the evaluation was summarized into a number of recommendations to improve a future sex work support program in Peterborough.

By Karlene Lloyd, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Kawartha Komets Special Needs Hockey Program; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 -, The purpose of the project was to get concrete research into developing best practices for coaching special needs hockey. A review of the literature was conducted to see the importance of getting individuals with a disability involved in sports and the positive impact it can have on an individual’s life. Surveys were sent out to organizations in both Canada and the United States. Following the surveys, five individuals were interviewed; who possessed a wealth of knowledge in special needs hockey. The results showed significant differences in many aspects of the special needs hockey community and how the practice of coaching is approached. However some core characteristics of successful coaching included the importance of a fun and safe environment, getting to know each player as an individual, and having a positive outlook about the playing experience were agreed upon amongst organizations.
