Commission building towards treaty

The Treaty Advancement Commission is continuing to build the pathway to treaties - and set up the Aboriginal Representative Body - after the weekend's Victorian election. 

The Commission will continue to set up elections for the Representative Body in mid-2019, as the government has been returned. 

"I think community can feel excited about what's coming up," said the Commissioner, Jill Gallagher AO.

"There'll be lots of opportunities for people to be involved," she said. 

The Representative Body will be set up in mid-2019. 

Elections will be held in the leadup to the Body being established. 

This week, Eleanor Bourke and Dan Turnbull have been elected co-chairs of the Aboriginal Treaty Working Group. 

In the next few weeks, the Commission will release details of recent feedback on the proposed Representative Body model.
