Australia is the only Commonwealth country that does not have a treaty with the First Peoples.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have never ceded sovereignty and have long called for treaty / treaties with both state and federal governments. 

The Victorian Government is currently engaging with the Aboriginal community in Victoria to develop a self-determination framework which will involve treaty-making. As part of this process, VACCA has written a Discussion Paper on treaty, self-determination and the Aboriginal Community Controlled Services sector, as well as developed a FAQ booklet to help inform people about treaty – including what it might look like and the impact it could have.
