Jobs, Land and Economy

Having a job helps people build the future they want for their families and their communities.

Getting adults into work and making sure everyone has the opportunity to own your own home, run your own business, and provide for yourself and your families will mean a strong future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

To make this happen, government and communities need to work together to:

  • Increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people working in real jobs
  • Train more people for local jobs in their communities
  • Help more people get jobs as Indigenous rangers
  • Progress land and Native Title claims
  • Negotiate more township leases.

The Government wants to work together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, so you can build your future your way. Different communities will have different priorities and different ways they want to develop and sustain economic independence in their region.
