Department of Premier and Cabinet

Migrant and multicultural communities

Chinese dragonTasmania's culturally and linguistically diverse communities have an important role to play in our unique multicultural society, which remains one of the State's greatest assets and strengths. The Community Development Division (CDD) in the Department of Premier and Cabinet is the main link between multicultural communities and the Tasmanian Government.

A key function of CDD is to provide honest and candid advice to the Government on multicultural affairs and citizenship in Tasmania. Our work includes:

  • providing policy advice to the Government on multicultural affairs,
  • increasing awareness of cultural diversity and appreciation of its benefits to the broader community, and
  • encouraging the mainstream community to be open and accepting of new arrivals to the State.

CDD works with all levels of government, including other State Government agencies, non-government organisations and community groups on issues related to multicultural affairs.

The Principal Liaison Officer - Multicultural coordinates and supports the division's priorities in relation to multicultural communities and may be contacted by emailing or phoning
(03) 6232 7192.
