ATSIEB elections

Updated 5 Aug 2014

The ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body was established by the ACT Legislative Assembly under the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body Act 2008 to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the ACT to have a strong democratically elected voice. The Act requires the Elected Body to consult with and consider the views of the United Ngunnawal Elders Council.

Its members represent the interests and aspirations of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. It provides direct advice to the ACT Government with the ambition of improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Canberrans.

Elections are conducted every three years to elect 7 members to the Elected Body.
