Treaty

Overview

The NSW Government is committed to a 12-month consultation process with Aboriginal communities on their aspirations for a Treaty framework or other formal agreement making process, to be led by three dedicated Commissioners.

Candidates are sought to serve as independent Treaty Commissioners. The Commissioners will be responsible for co-designing an approach to consultation, then undertaking consultation to determine whether NSW Aboriginal communities want a Treaty framework or agreement-making process and if so, what that process should look like.

Commissioners will be appointed for a two-year fixed term, and will provide reports directly to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Treaty and supported by a discrete secretariat based in Aboriginal Affairs NSW.

Applications for Treaty Commissioners closed on Friday 17 May 2024 and are now being reviewed.
