PRESCRIBED BODY CORPORATE UNIT
During an authorisation meeting (a penultimate step in the native title claim process), the Native Title Holders nominate an Aboriginal Corporation to hold their native title rights and interests. At this meeting, Native Title Holders also nominate and elect directors of the Aboriginal Corporation to represent them.
At the native title determination, an Aboriginal Corporation registered under the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 is granted native title as trustee or agent on behalf of the people and that corporation is thereafter referred to as the “Prescribed Body Corporate” (PBC).
The Cape York Land Council (CYLC) PBC Unit provides capacity development support to PBCs to assist them fulfil their legislative requirements and meet their responsibilities to their members and Native Title Holders.
The services offered are divided into three categories, being governance training at the commencement of the year, basic support funding administration during the year and Annual General Meeting support from 1 July to 30 November.
The CYLC PBC Unit is currently comprised of a Principal Lawyer, Legal Officer, Senior Business Support Officer and three Business Support Officers. There are currently 27 PBCs in the CYLC native title representative body area as listed below, although this number may increase as a result of further native title determinations.
