At the City of Canning our vision is to become an engaging organisation that understands community values and priorities.


We use our best endeavours to meet the needs of current and future generations through the integration of environmental protection, social advancement and economic prosperity.

Working for a local government is more than just a job. The City of Canning aims to inform, consult, involve, collaborate and empower not only the community but valued employees as well.

Ultimately, becoming part of the City’s team will provide you with an opportunity to directly contribute to the community. You will be able to get involved in helping the Council on key decisions that make a difference to community members and work to create a sustainable and productive City for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The City of Canning’s community involvement is significant, with a focus on activities that build both social and economic well being for residents and staff. If you join the City of Canning, you’ll have many opportunities to give back and develop yourself, whether through volunteering, donating or playing a part in securing a sustainable future.

The City engages with a range of people who are living, working and using services. Many of our employees get an opportunity to liaise with our key community groups including:

  • Individuals including residents, landowners and visitors
  • Government agencies including Local, State and Federal
  • Community groups including environmental, social and recreational
  • Religious and spiritual groups
  • Businesses including commercial, retail and industrial
  • Sector groups including investors and developers
  • Aboriginal community
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse groups
  • Non-governmental organisations
  • Young people

If you are looking to work for an organisation committed to making a positive impact both within its employees and the community, then explore our City, let us inspire you and find a job with us so you can achieve.
