Aboriginal self-determination at the VEC

Here at the VEC, we are active supporters of self-determination for Aboriginal Victorians. On our website you can find our Self-determination Statement for this community. The Statement, based on the State Government’s Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework, demonstrates our commitment to ongoing consultation and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Victoria, leading to the transferring of power, resources and decision-making to Victorian Aboriginal communities.

The Statement is an exciting step forward for the VEC’s ongoing relationship with Victorian Aboriginal communities and will inform the creation of our Aboriginal Engagement Plan, to be released in 2021.

Find more information, visit our website and specifically, the Self-determination page.
