1. Tranze-Drabinia, Dina. A Home for Urban Families: An Alternative Approach to Housing in Downtown Toronto.

Degree: 2017, University of Waterloo

As prices of single family homes rapidly increase in Toronto, many families are faced with a challenging dilemma: move beyond the city’s peripheries to where house prices are lower, or remain within the city and attempt to find suitable housing in multi-unit buildings. Recently, more families have been choosing the latter, yet discovering that the city offers very few affordable housing options suitable for families with children. This thesis is an exploration into why this is the case and a proposition for a possible solution. The exploration is broken down into two components: the political and economic framework of housing affordability and an urban and architectural analysis of design compatibility of housing for families with children. The findings suggest that a more comprehensive economic model is required, with consideration given to community land trusts and co-operative housing. Furthermore, a design approach which considers the amenities and diversity required by family life is seen to create a more inclusive built environment. The research culminates in a design synthesis - a proposal of a co-operative building on an existing parking lot in Bloor West Village. The proposed design of the Home for Urban Families is exemplary in nature, in that it displays a possible solution within the established framework of the thesis.

2. Torres Ospina, Sara. Uncovering the Role of Community Health Worker/Lay Health Worker Programs in Addressing Health Equity for Immigrant and Refugee Women in Canada: An Instrumental and Embedded Qualitative Case Study .

Degree: 2013, University of Ottawa

“Why do immigrants and refugees need community health workers/lay health workers (CHWs) if Canada already has a universal health care system?” Abundant evidence demonstrates that despite the universality of our health care system marginalized populations, including immigrants and refugees, experience barriers to accessing the health system. Evidence on the role of CHWs facilitating access is both lacking and urgently needed. This dissertation contributes to this evidence by providing a thick description and thorough analytical exploration of a CHW model, in Edmonton, Canada. Specifically, I examine the activities of the Multicultural Health Brokers Co-operative (MCHB Co-op) and its Multicultural Health Brokers from 1992 to 2011 as well as the relationship they have with Alberta Health Services (AHS) Edmonton Zone Public Health. The research for this study is based on an instrumental and embedded qualitative case study design. The case is the MCHB Co-op, an independently-run multicultural health worker co-operative, which contracts with health and social services providers in Edmonton to offer linguistically- and culturally-appropriate services to marginalized immigrant and refugee women and their families. The two embedded mini-cases are two programs of the MCHB Co-op: Perinatal Outreach and Health for Two, which are the raison d’être for a sustained partnership between the MCHB Co-op and AHS. The phenomenon under study is the Multicultural Health Brokers’ practice. I triangulate multiple methods (research strategies and data sources), including 46 days of participant and direct observation, 44 in-depth interviews (with Multicultural Health Brokers, mentors, women using the programs, health professionals and outsiders who knew of the work of the MCHB Co-op and Multicultural Health Brokers), and document review and analysis of policy documents, yearly reports, training manuals, educational materials as well as quantitative analysis of the Health Brokers’ 3,442 client caseload database. In addition, data include my field notes of both descriptive and analytical reflections taken throughout the onsite research. I also triangulate various theoretical frameworks to explore how historically specific social structures, economic relationships, and ideological assumptions serve to create and reinforce the conditions that give rise to the need for CHWs, and the factors that aid or hinder their ability to facilitate marginalized populations’ access to health and social services. Findings reveal that Multicultural Health Brokers facilitate access to health and social services as well as foster community capacity building in order to address settlement, adaptation, and integration of immigrant and refugee women and their families into Canadian society. Findings also demonstrate that the Multicultural Health Broker model is an example of collaboration between community-based organizations and local systems in targeting health equity for marginalized populations; in particular, in perinatal health and violence against women.
