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.
