We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Supported learning courses build independence

Ara Institute of Canterbury

If you have a young person with an intellectual or learning disability, our Supported Learning courses can equip them with valuable skills and confidence for work and everyday life. They’ll become more independent, and if they've recently finished high school, it’ll help them transition smoothly into tertiary education.

At Ara, your young adult will be welcomed and encouraged by our dedicated Supported Learning tutors and staff who are committed to their wellbeing and success. They’ll also be part of the wider Ara student community and have the opportunity to participate in numerous on-campus events and activities.
