Background

Reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians (Reconciliation Australia).

The City of Marion recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First People of Australia and traditional owners of the land and waters.

Council is committed to a two-way relationship built on trust, respect, integrity, inclusion, equality and equity. We were one of the first councils to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) that sets out to expand and improve the way we, and our community, will build relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our current RAP 2020-23 has enabled us to deliver over 300 significant, tangible, and meaningful RAP actions over the last three years.

Our RAP includes activities that we know can make a difference: building good relationships, respecting the special and cultural contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to Australia, implementing good governance and working together to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have the same life opportunities as all people in our city.

We are currently updating our RAP, which will run from 2024-25.

We would now like to invite you to review the plan and provide your feedback by completing the survey below. All community and stakeholder feedback will be considered before providing the final draft plan to Council in early 2024.
