For over ten years, the National Indigenous Consumer Strategy (NICS) has sought to improve consumer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The strategy has been  delivered through a series of action plans developed by the NICS reference group, which comprises the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), Australian Securities Investment Commission (ASIC), all State and Territory Fair Trading offices and independent member, the Indigenous Consumer Assistance Network (ICAN). This year the NICS reference group is seeking your input to better understand consumer protection issues affecting Indigenous people in Australia. The survey covers key priority areas of the 2017–2019 NICS action plan:

  • Trading practices
  • Scam practices
  • Housing
  • Consumer directed care
  • Motor vehicles
  • Financial services

The team at ICAN would like to encourage our E-News readers to have your say and help shape the NICS action plan moving forward.  The survey takes between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on how much you’ve got to say and can be accessed by following this link.
