Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation

Category: Organisation
Sub Category:Statutory Body
Summary Information:
The Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation was established by the Commonwealth Parliament in 1991. The Council has worked since that time to promote the understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and achievements and to foster a community commitment to coexistence and a reconciled nation. The Council ceased to exist on 1 January 2001, but through its Strategic Plan it aimed to ensure that the work of reconciliation would go on. The Strategic Plan for the Council's final term provided the framework within which the Council sought to fulfill its responsibility to promote a process of reconciliation which will reach the hearts and minds, and touch the lives, of the whole Australian community. The Council comprised 25 community leaders drawn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, the industries which have most impact on Aboriginal people, and from business and other sectors.
