Queensland Multicultural Policy

Queensland Multicultural Action Plan

Our story, our future’ is the Queensland Government’s multicultural policy promoting an inclusive, harmonious and united community for Queensland. The policy focuses Queensland Government action on three policy priorities for culturally diverse communities and Queensland as a whole – achieving culturally responsive government; supporting inclusive, harmonious and united communities; and improving economic opportunities.

The policy is being implemented through a three year Queensland Multicultural Action Plan 2016-17 – 2018-19.

The policy and action plan are a requirement of the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016 (the Act) and represent one of three key provisions of the Act – together with establishing the Multicultural Queensland Charter and Multicultural Queensland Advisory Council.

Section 24 of the Act requires entities with actions in the action plan to report publicly on an annual basis. The report fulfils this requirement for the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
