Message from the Chief Minister, Andrew Barr

Chief Minister, Andrew Barr

Since becoming Chief Minister of the ACT, I have been speaking with Canberrans about how we can improve services.

The ACT Government is unique in Australia because it provides state level services such as health, education and public transport, and also municipal services such as mowing, cleaning and rubbish collection.

We’ve been working hard to deliver the services Canberrans need. In recent months we’ve regulated ridesharing businesses (such as Uber), finalised plans for a new hospital at the University of Canberra and reached an agreement with the Federal Government to continue providing 15 hours of pre-school for Canberra's children.

I hope you will find this a useful update on the work going on in your community.
