Te Tākinatanga - Our Story
At Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand, our key role is to ensure New Zealanders have accurate information about where people and places are, that people have confidence in their property rights and that Crown property is well managed for future generations.
Guided by the whakataukī ‘Whatungarongaro te tangata toitū te whenua' (people come and go, but the land remains), our purpose is ‘understanding, developing and caring for whenua, moana and arawai'.
We have recently embarked on an exciting change at Toitū Te Whenua that is focused on how we can be more integrated and connected internally, and with our customers, and how we can work in different ways to help us be as successful as we can be.
