This document explains the Treaty Negotiation Framework for First Peoples.

In 2022, the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria (known as ‘the Assembly’) signed a landmark agreement with the Victorian Government that sets out the ground rules for Treaty-making in Victoria (known as the ‘Treaty Negotiation Framework’ or the ‘Framework’.)

The Assembly is the independent elected body that represents the First Peoples’ Community in Victoria in the Treaty process – including Victorian Traditional Owners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples living in Victoria.
