Victoria is paving the way as the first state in Australia to reach this stage in the Treaty process. The efforts of Elders and First Peoples in fighting for Treaty is something to be respected and celebrated.
Treaty is for all Victorians and will allow us to come together, share and listen so we can build a deeper understanding and a foundation of mutual respect on the journey towards reconciliation.
Reconciliation Victoria believe Treaty will be the most significant step towards self-determination ever taken in Victoria and that Treaty possibilities will strengthen reconciliation pathways and progress.
