Abstract

Minister for Seniors and Disability Services and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships
The Honourable Craig Crawford announces that the Queensland Government is establishing a $300 million Path to Treaty Fund, as a major investment in reconciliation and healing.
The returns from the fund will be used to progress Queensland’s Path to Treaty and support the Government’s response to the Treaty Advancement Committee report, expected to be provided to Government later in 2021.
Minister for Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Craig Crawford said this places Queensland in a good place to take action on the next steps towards a treaty or treaties.
“This is an important step forward in our Treaty journey, as we work to acknowledge and address past injustices, and create a new future between First Nations and non-Indigenous Queenslanders.,” Mr Crawford said.
“This is an investment in the future of our State, and the treaty process is a critical tool in promoting reconciliation.
“We are also investing $4.5 million to address land administration requirements and infrastructure planning initiatives in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities including to enable homeownership opportunities.”
