Anti-Discrimination Commission

What is the Anti-Discrimination Commission?

The Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission promotes equal opportunity for all Territorians. Established in 1993, we aim to eliminate discrimination from happening by raising awareness about individual’s rights and responsibilities under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act.

The Anti-Discrimination Commission has three main roles: Public education and training, handling complaints and community engagement.

More about the Anti-Discrimination Commission

If you have been unlawfully discriminated against, you can lodge a complaint under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act. But it’s important to know your rights and responsibilities before making a complaint.
