Our contracts have taken us to a variety of communities, including many Aboriginal communities. We have worked in a variety of settings ranging from the Vancouver Downtown Eastside, to small grassroots agencies, to universities, and to remote communities in Alaska, the Yukon and Northwest Territories. As well, we have worked on projects involving youth in care, survival sex workers, immigrants and refugees, elders, and families with a child, youth or adult with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Our strong participatory approach has helped facilitate linkages with the individuals that work in the communities and with program participants. In turn, this has enabled us to develop a sensitive approach to the unique issues faced by each community or group.
