On Wednesday 7 September 2016, Transport Canberra and City Services launched it's first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) (PDF 3MB).
The RAP formalises some of the work that is already being achieved by the Directorate and also outlines what more can be done for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The RAP covers the period from September 2016 to August 2018 and is a framework that sets outs ways to contribute to reconciliation.
The RAP will result in real outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and include a range of employment strategies, a bus wrap branded with Indigenous artwork, presentation flower beds to celebrate significant dates as well as cultural information videos produced by Ngunnawal persons.
Transport Canberra and City Services takes this RAP seriously and value the knowledge and skills of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander colleagues in providing services for the Canberra community and caring for the surrounding land and waters.
The launch of the Transport Canberra and City Services Reconciliation Action Plan was held at Corroboree Park, Ainslie on the morning of Wednesday 7 September 2016. Some of the highlights of the ceremony are available on this video presentation.
