DBCA is committed to ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are extended the same opportunities as all other Australians.
The department’s vision for reconciliation is for all Australians to value and recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as part of a proud, shared identity. The department is committed to sharing knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture to ensure an understanding and appreciation by all Australians. This is only possible through mutually respectful working relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, businesses and communities.
DBCA's Reconciliation Action Plan is an overarching strategy that underpins the department’s approach and commitment to improving the livelihood and maintaining the cultural integrity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the land and waters it manages.
