Regional Australia is changing, and with this transformation comes boundless opportunities to rethink what regional Australia means. Change is also bringing many challenges for our regions with population growth and jobs high on the agenda in South Australia.
New evidence is needed to help communities set a plan for the future and the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is looking forward to sharing its latest work with South Australia in July this year.
Regional Jobs and Migration in SA
Regions Rising SA is part of the RAI’s ground breaking national roadshow for 2019.
In March this year, South Australian Premier Steve Marshall signed a new Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) with the Morrison Government, aimed at bringing skilled migrants to regions to help fill the skills shortage facing SA. The RAI’s foundational work in this space can help support a new regional development push to recharge the regions.
Join us in Adelaide on 10 July and be part of the conversation about Regional Jobs and Migration in SA, where Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, The Hon. Tim Whetstone, will launch RAI’s highly anticipated migration toolkit Steps to Settlement Success.
This toolkit encapsulates the many lessons learned by communities around the country who have successfully welcomed migrants to help fill job vacancies and drive the population of their regional towns and cities.
This work, which has been generously supported by the Scanlon Foundation, will help guide regional communities and the South Australian Government in their renewed efforts to attract migrants and more importantly see them stay in SA.

The Government of South Australia recognises the importance of an Active State, and holds the belief that sport and active recreation develops stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities.
Sport and recreation helps to build communities through social inclusion and a sense of connection, helps build families through shared experiences and shared achievements and can help address antisocial behaviour and support education. Sport and recreation is not the cure-all for society’s issues, but with quality delivery and an appropriate level of support, it can assist in a positive way socially, economically and environmentally.
The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing (ORSR) is the lead agency for the South Australian Government’s policy on sport and active recreation. ORSR supports sport and recreation through the development of policy, programs and resources, the provision of funding, recreation and sport planning, infrastructure development, elite sport pathways and programs, and the promotion of physical activity.
The ORSR is actively seeking deeper collaboration with the community on three projects which were identified as key priorities for the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan cycle.
The three priority projects are;
- Game On, Getting South Australia Active
- The South Australian Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Plan; and
- The Grants Review.
As an initial stage, we are undertaking a comprehensive and coordinated engagement process to gather input for all three of these projects, as they are closely aligned and will deliver outcomes that address whole of government and department objectives.
The Game On project will prioritise and explore a handful of key issues relevant to the sport and recreation industry and provide a platform for shared understanding and focused collaboration across the industry and across government.
The South Australian Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Plan will identify the future sport and recreation infrastructure needs, and a framework for prioritising and progressing projects.
The Grants Review will identify how we can maximise the impact of ORSR funding to support the delivery of quality sport and recreation experiences that are accessible for all South Australians.
The 2 month consultation for these projects will be extensive – through surveys, written submissions, interviews and interactive workshops and forums to be held across the state. We want to gather as much input as possible to ensure the community can contribute to these three projects and influence how South Australia is an active state.
