1. Brockington, Meghan. Offshore Drilling: An Emerging Issue in Arctic Food Security, a review.

Degree: MSc, 2016, McMaster University

This thesis looked at the effects of offshore drilling on food security prospectively. The thesis aimed to understand the effects of offshore drilling and the importance of traditional foods to the Canadian Arctic Indigenous People. Furthermore this thesis aimed to contribute to food security research that is conceptualized within an indigenous context.

Background: Due to global climate change, the melting of arctic ice has increased geopolitical interest in the land due to newly accessible oil reservoirs on the continental shelf. With the imminent rise in offshore gas drilling, this presents an additional threat to Arctic food security. Indigenous populations living in the circumpolar north face many challenges in accessing adequate and nutritional food sources. One of the most significant factors impacting food security is the availability of traditional food. Objectives: To critically examine existing data and literature to discuss the impact of offshore gas drilling on traditional marine food sources. Additionally, the cultural, spiritual and physical health aspects of traditional food consumption will be determined. Methods: Arksey and O’Malley’s scoping review framework was adopted to examine the effects of offshore drilling activities on marine fauna. Furthermore, a literature review was used to determine the significance of traditional food to Canada Arctic Aboriginals. Conclusions: Offshore drilling activities may impact the four dimensions (access, availability, utilization and stability) of food security, therefore threatening food security in the Canadian Arctic.

2. Huang, Elisabeth. Assessing the barriers and facilitators to food security that influence dietary changes among refugees.

Degree: MSc, 2014, McMaster University

Objective: Refugees experience food challenges upon resettling in their host country. However, there is currently limited Canadian literature that reviews food security among refugees who resettle in Canada. This thesis will assess the barriers and facilitators to food security that influence the dietary changes of refugees who resettle in Hamilton, Ontario, from the perspective of the service providers as well as the refugees. Methods: A qualitative method was applied. Nine individual semi-structured interviews were carried out with service providers in Hamilton. Twelve refugees participated in one of three focus group interviews conducted in the languages of Arabic, Somali, or Spanish. Interviews were transcribed. The data was coded using a qualitative analysis software, NVivo 10. A social ecological model was used to analyse how facilitators and barriers at various levels of influence affect food security among refugees. Levels of influence included: intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational, community, and public policy. Findings: While several diet-related health concerns were mentioned by refugees, it is difficult to attribute these to diet-related causes since the psychological stress of resettlement was also cited as a causal factor of refugees. While both service providers and refugees agree upon certain facilitators and barriers to food security among refugees at each level of influence in the social ecological model, there were also differences between the two perspectives identified. Different issues were also identified between refugee claimants and government assisted refugees (GARs) who came from refugee camps. Conclusion: The complex relationship between various factors identified at different levels of the social ecological model demonstrate a need for a collaborative, multi-level intervention approach to optimize changes required to improve food security among refugees living in Hamilton.
