A Work Project, presented as part of the requirements for the Award of a Masters Degree in Management from the NOVA – School of Business and Economics; Universities need a unique and differentiated positioning to stand out and continue to grow in the Ontario Higher Education marketplace. The University of Guelph-Humber’s business program does not currently have a clear positioning strategy, which is necessary to increase enrolment and ultimately profits. In essence, it has yet to find the one unique word that is synonymous with the University of Guelph-Humber. With the use of qualitative and quantitative research, this thesis will present a better understanding of the decision-making process when applying to a business program and to propose a positioning strategy for Guelph-Humber that is credible, compelling and distinctive.

Arpin Lake (northwestern Ontario) is located in an area with minimal anthropogenic disturbances and low acid deposition; therefore more likely to track the effects of recent climatic changes on phytoplankton, specifically scaled chrysophytes. This study used a paleolimnological approach to assess long-term shifts (~ ca. 1800 to present) in the composition of scaled chrysophytes in two sediment cores from Arpin Lake. Changes in absolute and relative abundances of scaled chrysophytes in cores 1 and 2 identified the same major zonation, which occurred between 1952 and 1968. The taxa identified in contributing to this change in relative abundance were: increases in Synura petersenii and Synura echinulata and decreases in Mallomonas duerrschmidtiae and Mallomonas pseudocoronota, and to a lesser extent decreases in Mallomonas caudata and Mallomonas lelymene. Whereas the taxa identified in contributing to changes in absolute abundance were increases in S. petersenii, S. echinulata, and M. duerrschmidtiae, and to a lesser extent increases in M. pseudocoronota and M. caudata, and decreases in M. lelymene. While drought and changes in the level of dissolved organic carbon may contribute to shifts in chrysophyte assemblages, it is not the primary factor. Similarly...

Phenological events, such as frog calling and breeding, plant flowering or animal migration are influenced by many abiotic factors, including microclimate. Understanding the proximate cues that trigger spring emergence and subsequent breeding activity in frogs has been a major focus in anuran conservation, especially because some evidence suggests marked shifts that could be caused by climate change. My study tested whether temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, rain, and wind speed could predict frog chorusing intensity in 11 eastern Ontario wetlands. One-hour acoustic recordings were taken each night just after sunset between May 7th and August 8th 2008, with air temperature and relative humidity taken hourly at each site. Calling activity in four of seven detected species could be predicted using a subset of my predictor variables: Hyla versicolor, Pseudacris crucifer, Lithobates catesbeianus, and Lithobates clamitans. These predictors appear to be species specific as well as region specific, with the exception of temperature which is common across species and studies. The three summer breeding species (H. versicolor, L. catesbeianus, L. clamitans) showed an approximately positive relationship between calling activity and temperature as they cannot tolerate cold temperature...

A professional workshop series has been designed for the purpose of bringing together Ontario’s aspiring principal leaders who are considering moving into a leadership position. The workshop series accommodates working professionals who are unable to attend a full day. The workshops are designed for meeting once per week for two hours; however, a full day workshop could easily be accommodated. The four workshops provide a forum for professional dialogue and critical self-reflection. The workshop topics have been purposefully selected to provide participants with information about the Ontario Ministry of Education’s leadership initiatives. Issues one must consider before assuming a principal’s position are also presented to assist participants in making an informed decision about their leadership pathway. Participants will actively engage with the Institute for Education Leadership’s (n. d.) “Self Assessment Tool for Aspiring Leaders” document which was published for the purpose of assisting Ontario’s aspiring leaders with personalized leadership development. Future leaders will also be provided with information regarding administrative portfolio development, the Principal’s Qualification Program, and an extensive online leadership development reading list.

The eastern garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis) and the northern water snake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon) occur sympatrically throughout most of their range, but differ markedly in vagility, size, and habitat usage. Due to the effect of these factors on migration and gene flow, I hypothesized that the two species would show different patterns of genetic differentiation and population structure across a heterogeneous landscape including both island and mainland sites. Four microsatellite loci from each of 129 garter snakes and three loci from 103 water snakes were surveyed across three island and seven mainland sites in Eastern Ontario. Bayesian spatial assignment, calculations of pairwise population differentiation, and tests of isolation by distance were performed. Island-mainland garter snake population pairs showed the highest differentiation, while water snakes displayed significant differentiation between both island-mainland and mainland-mainland population pairs. Main Duck Island, the smallest and most geographically isolated of the island sites, appeared to constitute a distinct genetic cluster in both species. Further work is needed to clarify these patterns, but the genetic distinctiveness of Main Duck Island in both garter snakes and water snakes suggests these populations...

This report explores locational differences in the incidence of those experiencing housing affordability problems between 1991 and 2001 in Ontario. Three variables were created for this purpose using publicly available census data (PUMF) for: Toronto, CMAs and Other/Rural. The following key research questions were considered: 1. Are there differences between affordability rates in rural and urban locations? 2. What are the identified characteristics of low-income households experiencing affordability problems? (e.g. income, education, age, etc.) 3. Do differences in the identified characteristics between rural and urban locations help to explain differences in the intensity of low-income and housing affordability problems in these locations? 4. What are the planning implications of any identified differences between rural and urban locations? In considering these questions, this report takes the following structure: Summary of general trends in each of the locales (including in population, incidence of low-income, and affordability) Household trends in each of the locales (including household size, income and employment) Primary maintainer characteristic trends in each of the locales (including employment income, labour-force participation...

This report examines land use planning appeals made to the Ontario Municipal Board between the years of 2006 and 2011. The report examines specific planning appeals that contain a significant natural hazard component. For the purposes of this report the term ‘natural hazard’ refers specifically to the three main natural hazards identified in the 2005 Provincial Policy Statement, including flood hazards, erosion hazards, and dynamic beach hazards. The objective of this research is to provide insight into the trends associated with OMB decisions on appeals with substantial natural hazard components. Building from the objective, the goal of this report is to provide planners involved with OMB hearings a better understanding of how the Board interprets and adjudicates appeals with significant natural hazard components, thus allowing for a better understanding of what types of arguments may find favour with the Board.

Vehicle collisions represent one of the largest anthropogenic causes of wildlife mortality. Herpetofauna are at risk for large population declines and potential extirpation as a result of a small percentage of total population mortality due to roads. Herpetofauna play an important role in wetland ecosystems and provide many ecosystem services. Ecopassages allow for the safe passage of animals under roads. The objective of this research is to identify the common elements of ecopassage developments and innovative practices that may be adopted for future application in Southern Ontario. In this paper four ecopassage case studies were used to ascertain the main features in ecopassage design and implementation. A qualitative analysis was done to highlight the major themes from each case. These themes were then compared with those present in the reference literature on ecopassages to determine their validity. In all of the case studies, the main ecopassage features were the identification of the species of importance, the identification of crossing ‘hot spots’, and the importance of fencing. The reference literature also cited the importance of mitigation and of installing ecopassages during initial road construction. Additionally, innovative approaches to ecopassage design were found in the Long Point Causeway and 1000 Islands Parkway cases. These include combining a change in driver behaviour with a change in animal behaviour and using the construction of an ecopassage as an opportunity to create a multi-use road thereby implementing multiple benefits into one development while offsetting the perceived cost and time of the project. Providing social benefits may also serve to bring the community together with their natural environment and will improve the public opinion surrounding ecopassage projects.; Undergraduate Honours Thesis Supervisor: Graham Whitelaw ENSC 501 April 2015; School of Environmental Studies

Leathers, Daniel J.; In this study, an analysis of simulated lake-induced snowfall from 2006-2100 is conducted, investigating the presence of a lake-induced snowfall signal to the lee of Lakes Erie and Ontario. Output from seven fully coupled global climate models (GCM) s are used from phase five of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5). Snowfall trends over the entire study area and in the defined lake-induced Snowbelt are examined seasonally for two Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios. In addition, physical mechanisms associated with these trends, such as lake lapse rates, surface temperatures and snow to total precipitation ratios are examined. The models perform well when compared to derived and observed snowfall observations despite model difficulties in resolving small scale orographic and finite lake effect processes. Snowfall declines by 20 - 45% over the entire region, with snowfall actually increasing in the lake-induced region during the first quarter century before declining rapidly in RCP 8.5. An additional 1.7 cm snow-water-equivalent (SWE) signal of purely lake-induced snowfall is detected within the ensemble mean of the defined lake-induced Snowbelt to the lee of the two lakes that is not seen in the grid cells outside of the lake belt. Surface two-meter temperature is found to have the most significant impact on snowfall changes in the region...

The major problem in this area stemmed from the high level of Lake Ontario. This high level, along with the even higher waves which accompanied the March 17 storm, caused severe erosion along much of the shore of Lake Ontario from St, Catharines to Vhitby and beyond. In the area which we selected for study this posed a parricular threat, for the erosion at the foot of the shoreline bluffs caused landslides at the top of the bluffs, leaving some homes very near the edge of the bluff and in danger of sliding over. Further along the shoreline the major problem was simply the high water level itself, which threatened to flood some homes and cottages on a sand spit between the Lake and a bay.
