Submission to the New Skilled Regional Visas Bill

The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) is the national voice of local government in Australia, representing 537 councils across the country. In structure, ALGA is a federation of State and Territory Local Government Associations. This submission should be read in conjunction with any separate submissions received from State and Territory Associations as well as individual councils.

75% of Australia’s local governments are in rural, remote or regional areas of Australia. Depending on local circumstances, many regional and rural local governments are actively working to attract and retain workers and residents in their communities.
