Our job is to be a strong, democratically elected voice to the ACT Government. We listen to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Canberrans and represent your ideas and concerns to the changemakers, so we can get results on issues that are important to us.

Our direct advice to local government supports safety, quality of life and reconciliation for our community in Canberra and surrounds.
