Council for the Australian Federation

Text Size a a a Print Print this page

Established in October 2006, the Council for the Australian Federation (CAF) is an intergovernmental forum for State and Territory leaders. The Commonwealth is not a member of CAF. 

CAF is intended to complement the work of COAG and facilitate COAG-based agreements with the Commonwealth by working towards common positions among the States and Territories.

The COAG Secretariat's role in the CAF process, as with COAG, is to support the work of the Premier and Cabinet by ensuring that Western Australia establishes a clear, whole-of-government position on all key CAF issues.
