Well another National Aborigines & Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week is over and while it has been successful in its goal of being a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields, the question is what happened in the City of Canning?

Well, I am pleased to report that the City both donated funds towards the celebration of NAIDOC Week in Western Australia and made City facilities available for nil fee to the Doorum Aboriginal Corporation’s NAIDOC Formal Dinner Dance.

As well as supporting NAIDOC celebrations the City is also engaged in providing long term corporate support and governance support and training to the Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku

The Shire is responsible for the provision of mainstream local government and delivery of services to the ten communities and visitors within its boundaries.

The Shire encompasses an area of 159,948 square kilometres and is located approximately 1542km from Perth. The region itself is diverse in natural beauty from the magnificent Rawlinson ranges to the red sandy plains of the Gibson Desert.

Just thought you’d like to know.
