Independent Citizens Association Inc (Independent Citizens) is a grouping of independent Christchurch citizens, free of party politics.

Independent Citizens members are committed to providing strong leadership in Christchurch City Council, Community Boards and the Canterbury District Health Board.

We are actively working for the recovery and development of Christchurch as a world class boutique city. We will work collaboratively within local government and with central government to ensure quality services without duplication.

As a team, Independent Citizens is able to offer excellent governance and strategic direction while being responsive to the needs of local people. Our residents have felt marginalised for too long in the post earthquake environment. This must change. We put people first.
