Multicultural Action Plan: 2022 update

Background

'Our story, our future' is the Queensland Government's Multicultural Policy (the Policy) which promotes an inclusive, harmonious and united community for Queensland.

The Policy focuses Queensland Government action on 3 policy priorities for culturally diverse communities and Queensland as a whole:

  1. achieving culturally responsive government
  2. supporting inclusive, harmonious and united communities
  3. improving economic opportunities.

The Queensland Multicultural Action Plan 2019-20 to 2021-22 (the Action Plan) is the third Multicultural Action Plan released under the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016 (the Act). It builds on outcomes achieved under the first Multicultural Action Plan, and will continue to drive Queensland Government action to support an environment of opportunity and achieve improved social and economic outcomes for people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

The Policy and Action Plan are a requirement of the Act and represent 1 of 3 key provisions of the Act, together with establishment of 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 2019-22 for the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
