NAIDOC Walk Event

Kaya,

The City of Canning recognises the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation as the traditional custodians of the Canning area. The City respectfully acknowledges the Elders of past, present and future and the community’s strong links to the beautiful Djarlgarro Beelier.

The City’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was completed in 2019. Over the development and implementation of this Reflect RAP staff across the City have been working to progress a range of actions that have contributed to positive outcomes across the three RAP themes: relationships, respect and opportunity.

Some of these achievements include:

  • The development of strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations including Sister Kids Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation and Langford Aboriginal Association
  • The continual success and growth of annual NAIDOC and Reconciliation Week events
  • The integration of Noongar language and cultural experiences across a range of community programming i.e. Rhymes by the River, Noongar language classes
  • Noongar naming across City building’s meeting rooms and the installation of door wraps featuring artworks commissioned from Sister Kids Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation
  • Installation of acknowledgement plaques on the exterior of City buildings

The City of Canning is committed to Reconciliation with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. In recognition of this commitment, the City is developing its second RAP. We are seeking to develop an Innovate RAP in collaboration with internal staff, external community members and organisations and the Canning Reconciliation Action Group (CRAG).

We are calling for nominations for the CRAG. Please complete the CRAG nomination form below to register your interest. Deadline for registering your interest is 30 April, 2021.

This page will be kept up to date with the journey on the RAP development.

  • Central to the Development of a RAP is the development of a Canning Reconciliation Action Group (CRAG) who will guide, inform and drive ideas to develop and implement Canning’s new RAP. 

    The City will develop an Innovate RAP which focuses on developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, developing and piloting innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This is your invitation to set the direction for Canning’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reconciliation Plan. 

    The objectives of the Reconciliation Action Group are to: 

    • Guide, inform and drive ideas to develop the City’s new RAP
    • Build a foundation for Reconciliation actions in the City
    • Raise awareness and support for the RAP and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander interests in the City
    • Review and provide feedback to the RAP process including the development, implementation and evaluation
