New Commission to drive next steps to treaty

The Victorian Treaty Advancement Commission commenced operations in January, 2018.

The Commission will strengthen independence for the Victorian Aboriginal community on the path to treaty, and ensure the community remains at the heart of the process.

The Commission's primary role is to operationalize the outcomes of the Aboriginal Community Assembly, and establish the Aboriginal Representative Body.

This includes:

  • Consulting Aboriginal Victorians
  • Providing research and advice on the treaty process
  • Maintaining momentum of the treaty process
  • Communicating progress on treaty to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Victorians

The Commission will cease to operate once the Aboriginal Representative Body is established.
