SCoA Submission - Inquiry into Strengthening Multiculturalism

Date Submitted : 02-Jun-2017

Themes : Inquiry Strengthening Multiculturalism Submission


SCoA celebrates the enormous contribution of migrants in Australia and the crucial role of Australia’s
settlement sector in supporting them as they establish their homes here.

SCoA submits that Australia’s migration program has successfully delivered a multicultural society which operates to the benefit of all.

SCoA believes that it remains vital for Australia and its leaders to passionately defend multiculturalism against any attempts to devalue it. Through this positive commitment, we can maintain Australia’s prominence as one of the world’s most welcoming nations, and continue to enjoy the success of a strong, cohesive society.
