Designated Area Migration Agreement

Goldfields DAMA Region

The Goldfields Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA) is a five-year labour agreement between the Federal Government, the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Shires of Esperance, Coolgardie, Dundas, Leonora, Menzies and Ravensthorpe, which commenced in July 2019.

The area is collectively referred to as the "Goldfields DAMA Region". It aims to attract skilled migrants to work and live in the Goldfields DAMA Region, allowing Goldfields employers to sponsor skilled overseas workers in specified industries that are currently experiencing critical skill and labour shortages.

We always advocate that employment should be offered to Australians first. Where there is a skills shortage, we believe skilled migrants are critical to supplement the local workforce.
