In order to explore the potential for increasing the exposure of archaeology within Ontario the authors conducted a comparative analysis of case studies from Ontario, British Columbia and Great Britain to indentify the similarities and differences between government structures and expenditures on archaeology, the limitations of access placed on CRM firms and the types of outreach programs utilized by selected museums. Their results suggest that partnerships between museums, the local community and established organizations could expand educational objectives and promote an increased awareness of Ontario archaeology.

Other student contributed posters included Archaeological Field School at the Nursery Site (AhGx-8), Royal Botanical Gardens by Tiffany D'Angelo, Courtney Hartwick, Erin Holborn, Stephanie Marshall and Ananta Sawh, McMaster University and Investigating Variation in Burial Practices at Two Neutral sites, 1630-1650 AD by William Lucas.
