Multicultural action plan

'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.

‘Our story, our future’ and its action plan are the first multicultural policy and action plan under the Multicultural Recognition Act 2016.

The policy focuses Queensland Government action over the next 3 years (2016–17 to 2018–19) on 3 priorities for people from culturally diverse backgrounds and for Queensland as a whole:

  • achieving culturally responsive government
  • supporting inclusive, harmonious and united communities
  • improving economic opportunities.

By focusing on these priorities, the Queensland Government will support equality of opportunity for all Queenslanders, and harness the remarkable benefits cultural diversity offers.

The department is committed to advancing these priorities, including ongoing annual reporting on key initiatives which drive positive outcomes for these priorities. Please read our most recent Multicultural policy and action plan report (PDF, 84.0KB).
