A comprehensive review into the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act) has been announced which will benefit over 3000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations around the country.
The CATSI Act is the law that establishes the role of the Registrar of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporations and provides for a special form of incorporation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.
The National Indigenous Australian Agency (NIAA) will be leading the review, with a focus to include what aspects are working effectively and what can be improved.
The review will have an expanded scope to include an assessment of the effectiveness of the CATSI Act as a special measure under the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, including offering better support to economic and community development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
You can participate by visiting the NIAA website .
Public consultation of Phase 1 closes 14 February 2020.
More information on the CATSI Act can be found on the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC) website.
