Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship
The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship (OMAC) within the Department of Premier and Cabinet drives Victorian Government multicultural policy and program implementation, to promote active citizenship and unity throughout a vibrant multicultural community.
Victorian Multicultural Commission
Established in 1983, the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) has provided independent advice to the Victorian Government to inform the development of legislative and policy frameworks, as well as the delivery of services to our culturally, linguistically and religiously diverse society.
The VMC is the voice of Victoria’s culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities and is the main link between them and the government. Our unique multicultural society remains one of our state’s greatest assets and strengths.
Operating under the Multicultural Victoria Act 2011 the VMC consists of 12 commissioners: a Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson, a Youth Commissioner, a representative of a community organisation and eight other members.
