Abstract: 

This thesis sets out to explore the recent emergence and legalization of private transportation companies within Ottawa. In doing so it seeks to understand some of the social, economic, and governmental factors that have worked to enable these companies to successfully emerge within the previously closed taxi market, and explores some of the potential social consequences that the legalization of private transportation companies will have for labourers, residents, and governing structures within Ottawa and Canada more generally.
