The objective for which OMAC is established is to address Indigenous disadvantage. Without limiting the generality of this objective, the Corporation seeks to advance that objective through doing the following:
- provide land management and other land related services to and for the benefit of the beneficiaries;
- hold interests in property and money on trust for the Beneficiaries; and
- promote the relief of poverty, sickness, destitution, serious economic disadvantage, distress, dispossession, suffering and misfortune of the beneficiaries.
Our Corporation strives to protect and support
- Our Country
- Our Culture
- Our Elders
- Our Young People
Through various initiatives and objectives, these essential elements of our community are cared for.
