The Multicultural Recognition Act 2016 promotes development of Queensland as a united, harmonious and inclusive community with opportunities for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to participate in all aspects of life in our state.
‘Our story, our future’ is the Queensland Government’s new multicultural policy promoting an inclusive, harmonious and united Queensland. Together with a new multicultural action plan, ‘Our story, our future’ drives Queensland Government action to build an environment of opportunity and achieve improved social and economic outcomes for people from culturally diverse backgrounds.
Established under the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016, the Multicultural Queensland Advisory Council provides advice to the Minister for Multicultural Affairs on opportunities and barriers facing people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and how to promote the Multicultural Queensland Charter.
The Multicultural Queensland Charter, established under the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016, is a statement of our values and aspirations, recognising our long and rich history of diversity and the strength it provides for our shared future.
Language services, such as interpreters, aim to provide people who have difficulties communicating in English with the same access to services and programs as English-speaking Queenslanders.
