Victorian Treaty Advancement Commission

The Victorian Treaty Advancement Commission commenced operations in January 2018.

Jill Gallagher AO is the Victorian Treaty Advancement Commissioner. She is a proud Gunditjmara woman who has lifelong experience in Aboriginal cultural heritage and service delivery. She previously served as head of the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation.

The Commission will create the Aboriginal Representative Body based on the final recommendations of the Aboriginal Treaty Working Group. The Commission will also consult with Aboriginal Victorians, provide research and advice on the treaty process, and communicate progress on treaty.

The Commission will operate until the Aboriginal Representative Body has been established.
