This critical ethnographic research explored the experiences of parents and grandparents participating with young children in a Family Centre in rural Alberta. Inclusion and exclusion were explored at multiple levels, following 10+ years of intersectoral collaboration and community-based efforts to address child poverty and social inclusion/exclusion in one community. This study provided support for an Integrated Framework for Social Justice (Yanicki, Kushner & Reutter, 2015) as a multilevel approach to enable all families (including low-income and Aboriginal families) to participate in community life.
