"Canadian Perspectives on Community Development presents a number of approaches to engaging diverse or marginalized groups in contemporary Canadian society. Founded on a perspective that speaks to differences of context, experience, and identity, it offers an in-depth analysis of community work geared towards advanced study in community practice.
The authors of this collection - recognized leaders in their fields - consider initiatives that address issues of poverty and environmental activism. They explore the work being done with stakeholders that include immigrants and refugees, persons with disabilities, and members of minority linguistic communities, feminist and trans communities, and arts-based community work done with the elderly.
At a moment in time when Canadian communities are more diverse than ever and are facing ongoing pressures from environmental, social and economic changes, this book offers a comprehensive view of the ways community workers engage with and support communities within the ever-shifting context of contemporary society."
