...transnational civil society is recognized as playing a part, it will be argued that it is ultimately the states that make the decisions. To this end the analysis will be from two different perspectives; the campaign against the anti-personnel landmines and the signing of the Ottawa treaty; and the rise of China despite ignoring “international norms” regarding human rights. Thus the analysis will be, first, an issue-based analysis and then an actor-based analysis. Landmines and the Ottawa Treaty Landmines have traditionally been used as an effective tool to prevent attacks by the enemy. Yet the downfall of having such a weapon in one’s arsenal is obvious, the weapon is indiscriminating; once set up it cannot and does not distinguish between soldier and civilian, thus leading to great civilian casualty and therefore seemingly going against the principles of just war . In the mid-nineties therefore there grew an increasingly large voice for the banning and destruction of the stockpiles of landmines that were kept by countries. This effort was largely led, and continues to be led, by the International Campaign to Ban Landmines , which is an NSA. In 1997, after several years of concentrated efforts, the Ottawa Treaty, or the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction came into effect. Until April 2010, 156 states have signed the treaty, while two states have signed but not ratified, who along......

Perogy

...offered in-store are mostly vegetarian and can be purchased frozen or cooked. Main competition of the store are other Eastern European stores in the Ottawa metropolitan as well as big chains like Loblaw and Metro. We believe that while Perogies is known for their high quality healthy foods and well established pricing model, they are lacking proper promotion and need an increased customer base. In order to attain the desired level of customer awareness we believe that Perogies will need to increase their online presence, by both social media and a complete redesign of their website. Moreover, flyer distribution in fitness centers, community centers and swimming pools will to further enhance Perogies as a onetime stop for proper healthy and nutritional food for people of all ages. A new sign will need to be purchased and installed, due to the need to attract IKEA customers more effectively. In long term, Pergoies will need to search for outside investment into the business and open a new location in the Chapel Hill area, as well as establish a delivery service. Strategy presented in this study is targeted on increasing brand awareness and customer base, while building on the current competitive advantages. Situation analysis Company Background Perogies is a family own and operated start-up located at 1129 Baxter Road, Ottawa.

The We’ve got your back campaign arms people with the skills to identify and guide themselves on how to deal with these issues and urges them to seek external help where appropriate. Ottawa Charter: The Ottawa Charter was created at an international conference for health promotion in Ottawa on the 21st of November 1986. Created as a response to growing expectations for a new public health movement around the world, its action is to achieve health for all by the year 2000 and beyond. This charter encourages the need for people to gain increased control over their health and the importance for the improvement of ones health. It states that health is not just the responsibility of the health sector; rather that it goes beyond healthy life-styles and well-being. The need to reach a state of complete physical, mental and social health is emphasised and it also identifies that health is a resource for everyday life, not just for the objective of living. The Ottawa Charter recognises that health promotion strategies and programmes should be adapted to the local needs and that individual countries and regions should take into account differing social, cultural and economic systems. These ideas can be fulfilled through the prerequisites for health; advocate, enable and meditate....

Logistics in Canada

...Kovessy is a reporter for the Ottawa Business Journal. He brings up a very interesting difference between Canadian logistics and those of the United States. In 2007 Federal Government statistics showed that Canadian supply-chain management and logistic costs were 12-30% higher than in the US (Kovessy, 2008). The stated reasons for such a drastic difference in cost was because of generally smaller markets and major Canadian cities being further apart than US cities, therefore higher transportation costs. Regardless in order for Canadian companies to continue to be prosperous they need to minimize their costs in order to not only compete globally but also locally. Bob Gauthier, president of Seaway Express, says the best way to do so is for transportation companies to move their operations from major cities to more rural low cost towns. Traditional logistics theories believe that if the end consumer is in a major city, the distribution should be in the same city but in fact that is no longer true. Bob Peters, a senior officer in Cornwall's economic development department says “shipping and warehousing firms have realized they can reduce labour and real estate costs while avoiding traffic congestion by moving to lower cost centres in eastern Ontario.” The example used is a supply-chain management warehouse in a town just outside of Ottawa called Cornwall. The warehouse distributes to over 90 Wal-Mart locations in places such as Kanata and Ottawa. As a result......

Funeral Home

...2 Annual number of deaths The five areas with the highest number of annual deaths are: Ottawa-Gatineau with 8,157.50 deaths, Hamilton with 5,943.50 deaths, St Catharines with 3,997.35, London with 3,584.93 deaths and Kitchener-Waterloo with 1,909.62 deaths. We would also recommend that the organization consider Ottawa-Gatineau and Hamilton as possible locations of the funeral home. 2.3 Areas with more than 170 deaths on average per annum These areas are Ottawa-Gatineau with 815.75 deaths, Hamilton with 424.54 deaths, St Catharines with 333.11 deaths, Cambridge with 213.82 deaths, Kitchener-Waterloo with 381.92 deaths and Guelph with 191.82 deaths. 2.4 Conclusion With our calculations and analysis, we would highly recommend St Catharines as one of the locations of the funeral home as it would give the organization a fair market share of 9.87%. The second location to consider is Ottawa-Gatineau as it meets the other criteria with the highest number of annual deaths of 8,157.50 and has more than 170 deaths on average per annum. We have attached charts and table as appendices to this report to aid the interpretation and help the company further in their final decisions of where to locate the funeral homes. 3.0 ANALYSIS METROPOLITAN AREA | DEATH RATE (THOUSANDS) | NUMBER OF FUNERAL HOMES | POPULATION 2013 (THOUSANDS) | NUMBER OF DEATHS | FAIR SHARE | TARGET MARKET | Ottawa-Gatineau | 6.25 | 10 | 1305.20 | 8157.50 | 6.25 | 815.75 | Hamilton | 7.84 | 14 |......

Cotton Defendant: Professor Jimming Lin; Counsel: Daniel Mayo Defendant: University of Ottawa; Counsel: Kathryn Prud’ Homme The case between Mr. Paul Boudreau and Professor Jimming Lin took place in the Ontario Supreme Court (General Division) presided by Métivier J. The hearing was on the March 3, 4, and 5, 1997 while the judgement was rendered on August 20, 1997. The Judges opening remarks to the case:- The plaintiff, Mr. Boudreau, asserts that a paper he prepared for his University course was published by the defendant, Professor Lin, who is an employee of the University of Ottawa without his permission and acknowledgment as the author. The action is being brought forward as an infringement of copyright. Facts Paul Boudreau was employed by a high-tech firm, Nortel, where he was the head of the Operations Control Department responsible for producing integrated circuits.

Car2Go

...considered the risks and key success factors. It has a demonstrated advantage in low cost but effective marketing. Car2Go has shown the ability to enter and capture significant market share in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto. Vehicle utilization, which accounts for 85% of revenues, has been high for Car2Go and parking arrangements have been successfully acquired. In addition to continued success and growth in current markets, Car2Go should expand into Ottawa. Both Ottawa and Montreal have excellent demographics for success. However, Ottawa has scarce competition comparatively and incomes are higher. The population is slightly smaller than Edmonton. However, the higher urban density and smaller area combined with a relatively affluent socially/environmentally conscious population makes for the ideal target market. Historically, low vehicle ownership rates were the best metric of economic viability in the industry, making Ottawa the perfect candidate at 410 per 1,000 people. Due to density and area, “city zone” coverage in Ottawa will be higher than most alternatives on a percentage basis. This improves customer convenience and satisfaction. Car2Go should focus on acquiring new parking arrangements and free floating agreements with municipalities in order to maximize competitiveness and user-satisfaction. If management builds around these key success factors, Car2Go can conquer new markets and increase profits well into the future....

...Date: October 5, 2015 To: Jim Watson, Mayor, City of Ottawa From: ..., Director of Planning, City of Ottawa Subject: Strategy to Promote Green Construction in Ottawa As per your request for a proposal for a new initiative related to sustainability, I am planning to deliver a presentation to the employees of the City of Ottawa’s Environment and Energy Department on the topic of promoting green construction policies in Ottawa. After conducting detailed research into Ottawa’s energy usage and environment, I came to the conclusion that the new initiative should emphasize green construction in general and passive solar buildings in particular. The memo set out below provides an overview of the advantages of green construction, an explanation of passive solar buildings, and information about the encouragement of passive solar buildings in Ottawa. Advantages of Green Construction According to the Canadian Environment Report, buildings are collectively the largest consumer of energy in Ottawa, ahead of transportation, and they are also the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions (Government of Canada, 2014). The growth of our communities has a major impact on our natural environment. The design, construction, and operation of the buildings in which we live and work have a significant impact on our natural resources. The common objective of all forms of green construction is the reduction of the overall......

(Almost) Free Parking

...How to Park Anywhere in Ottawa for Less than a Buck a Day Tired of ridiculous parking fees? Need to stretch you’re budget further? Can’t find an ideal parking spot? Read on. There’s a little known loophole in Ottawa Municipal Bylaws. Here is what the legislation says: (from website) (insert translation: In Ontario, drivers can renew their license either annually or bi-annually, but first must settle any outstanding tickets. Since the city caps the delinquent fine at $400, a driver can theoretically rack up unlimited tickets for no extra cost. Let me explain the loophole. Although it’s true that the city can issue an infinite number of parking tickets, the city defers collection of overdue and outstanding tickets to Service Ontario. As shown above, Service Ontario implements a per delinquent cap set at $400 every two years. Theoretically, a driver can accumulate an unlimited number of parking tickets and only pay the maximum fine. Unlimited tickets for $400 every two years? More like $400 for a two year parking pass. Seriously, you can park in any eligible parking space any time you want for $400 every two years. I call this the Ultimate V.I.P Parking Plan tm. This program obviously excludes: handicap and emergency services parking, plus no-parking and toe-away zones. However, the rest of the city might as well be your own fucking driveway. Let’s look at how much money you’ll save. Below are the accumulated parking fees over two years for the largest......

Conflict Resolution - City of Ottawa

...Description of Conflict The transit conflict in Ottawa began in early 2008 when the contract between OC Transpo, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279, and the city of Ottawa expired and negotiations began for a new contract. Negotiations were ongoing between the mentioned parties throughout the entire year and culminated into a strike that lasted from Dec 10, 2008 until January 29, 2009. Although this issue has been resolved, for residents, this is an issue that still resonates a feeling of disgust and underlying transit issues in the city. Sources of this conflict are incompatible goals and differentiation between the City of Ottawa and the union members and employees of OC Transpo. The main issue’s of work scheduling highlighted the goals of the City of Ottawa and OC Transpo employees were on a collision course. The conflict escalation cycle became very heated during Dec 1, 2008 when seven days of negotiations were taking place. Emotions of both parties including the residents of the city ran high and were very tense during the negotiations prior to the strike. The issue was manifesting into a full out conflict and perceptions of both sides, particularly the OC Transpo employees as being very aggressive and un-compromising. As the perceptions of the City of Ottawa as wanting more authority and not understanding the goals and work life of the OC Transpo employees grew, the conflict kept on escalating. Also, at the same time, the residents and the City of......
