Megan Linton (she/her) is a first year student in the Master of Public Policy Administration. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Megan completed her undergraduate degree in International Development Studies and Disability Studies at the University of Winnipeg. Megan chose to come to Carleton because of the strong program and researchers, the opportunities that present themselves in Ottawa, and the abundant beauty in Ottawa.

Megan is currently working on her thesis regarding sexual citizenship for persons who are institutionalized in Ontario. The research for this paper focused on the chronic data gaps for adults with developmental disabilities in Ontario. Through historical analysis of more than 120 years of policy papers, legislation and government documents, this paper analyzes the role of institutionalized data gaps.
