Victorian Regional Treaty Roadshow
In mid-2018, Reconciliation Victoria was pleased to commence building community support for Treaty by engaging non-Aboriginal Victorians through a series of regional roadshows in partnership with the Victorian Treaty Advancement Commission (VTAC) and many local councils. These roadshows helped build the capacity and understanding of local government, local reconciliation supporters and the general public of the various roles they can play to support Treaty.
Reconciliation Victoria would like to extend particular thanks to the councils that kindly co-hosted events with us:
City of Ballarat
Horsham Rural Council
Mildura Rural City Council
Swan Hill Rural City Council
City of Bendigo
City of Greater Shepparton
City of Wodonga
Rural City of Wangaratta
Baw Baw Shire Council
Latrobe City Council

We look forward to continuing local and statewide conversations as momentum builds for Treaty/ies in 2019.
Treaty in Victoria
Treaty has long been called for and will benefit all Victorians. We encourage councils to get informed and discover how they can best support the process. This can be done in a number of ways, including:
– Understand the Treaty process by visiting the VTAC website. In September 2018, The Treaty Advancement Commission released a proposed Representative Body model. The Representative Body will be the key voice for Aboriginal people in the next phase of the Treaty process. Details available on their website.
– Read more information about Treaty here on the Reconciliation Victoria website.
