Statutory context and reporting requirements

In August 2018, the Advancing the Treaty Process with Aboriginal Victorians Act 2018 (Treaty Act) became law, having passed through both houses of the Victorian Parliament in June 2018.

Under the Treaty Act, the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs is required to prepare an annual report on the work of the State in advancing the treaty process. The reporting requirements are set out in Part 8 of the Treaty Act.

This document constitutes the Minister's annual report for the 2020–21 financial year.

Part 8 of the Treaty Act also requires the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria (Assembly) to report annually on its work in advancing the treaty process.

The Assembly’s annual report will be a separate document.

These reporting requirements ensure that the Assembly and the State are transparent in their work to advance treaty in Victoria.
