They shall willingly work for the development of the territory.

The Canberra Matrix is completed for nominations for both ACT 190 and ACT 491. Here’s the method of submitting the Canberra Matrix.

  • Select one of these nominations: ACT 491 or ACT 190.
  • Select either “overseas applicant” or “Canberra resident”.
  • Select “yes” or “no” for ‘Doctorate Streamlined nomination’.
  • If “yes” was your choice for the last option, submit the Matrix.
  • In case Canberra resident and overseas applicants = “yes”, then complete the Canberra Matrix.
