Meet Niraj – Community Connector

We would love to introduce you to another of our amazing Community Connectors. Niraj is a mining industry professional and proud Indian migrant who migrated to Australia and has been living in the City of Canning for more than 13 years with his wife and teenage son.

In his spare time he enjoys walking, yoga and other light exercise; “we feel lucky to live in the Riverton area as it is surrounded by the best facilities needed for the family such as schools, libraries, swimming pools, gyms, and various sporting facilities,” Niraj said.

Niraj, a mining industry professional, has more spare time on his hands nowadays due to the uncertainty COVID has placed on his job. Instead of dwelling on the uncertainty, Niraj is eager to make use of his spare time to volunteer and support others during times of need to make the community stronger.

If you live in the Riverton, Shelley or Rossmoyne areas and are needing support or would like to reach out for some connection and a chat – you can get in touch with Niraj by emailing connect@canning.wa.gov.au or calling 1300 422 664.
