Council welcomes and embraces the different skills, varied views and diverse experiences associated with our culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
This diversity contributes to the innovation, productivity and economic growth of the region and enriches the lives of all residents.
Council supports community organisations that foster the activities and endeavours of multicultural groups in the region, see the community directory.
Several local organisations promote harmonious co-existence of diverse cultures by:
- Organising social gatherings & events
- Exchanging cultural information (through formal education & social activities)
- Offering consultancy & networking
- Offering training to support the multicultural community
The Caboolture and Redcliffe Multicultural (CARM) Forum is one mechanism, supported by Council, that aims to support and develop the multicultural sector of the region.
Harmony Day is held every year throughout Australia on 21 March to recognise and celebrate the cultural diversity of everyone who calls Australia home.
