Our city is proudly culturally diverse with almost one in three residents born overseas. We also have close to one million visitors each year from countries all over the world.
Our residents and visitors from culturally diverse backgrounds make a valued social and economic contribution to our city by:
- building a culturally diverse city
- bringing new and innovative skills
- participating in employment and educational opportunities
- developing strong international partnerships.
The City works in partnership with multicultural services, community groups, and government agencies to create a welcoming and inclusive community for residents and visitors.
