Townsville, Queensland: It’s as if it has always been there. The Townsville Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation for Health Services, known as TAIHS, has been part of the local community for forty years. Established in 1974 it was one of the first Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations to take back control of its own health care.
All corporations must lodge reports with the Registrar every year, between 1 July and 31 December. Corporations that don't lodge their 2013–14 reports by 31 December 2014 could face prosecution.

The Registrar is an independent statutory office holder who administers the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006 (CATSI Act).
This Act guides how Indigenous corporations are run. The CATSI Act started on 1 July 2007.
The Registrar's office supports and regulates the corporations that are incorporated under the CATSI Act. It does this in a variety of ways: by advising them on how to incorporate, by training directors, members and key staff in good corporate governance, by making sure they comply with the law and by intervening when needed.
