The Tasmanian Government is reviewing its Tasmanian Multicultural Policy (2001) to ensure it remains relevant and responsive to the State's changing needs. The 2013 Review will consider how Tasmania can continue to meet the needs of a modern society and derive benefits from its increasingly cultural, religious and linguistically diverse population.
The Tasmanian Multicultural Policy (2001) affirms the Government's commitment to the principles of multiculturalism as a means of strengthening social cohesion and harmony. Submissions are currently being analysed and the consultation report will be available at the end of the year.
Tasmania is a diverse multicultural State; regardless of the reason for migration or time of arrival, the resulting cultural, religious and linguistic diversity is a key asset for the State.
A major objective of the current Review is ensuring that the Tasmanian Government delivers culturally appropriate services to all its citizens, regardless of their cultural, linguistic and religious background.
It is important that the resulting Tasmanian Multicultural Policy enhances a society where all Tasmanians are treated fairly, with respect and without discrimination, and have an equal opportunity, and responsibility, to engage in Tasmanian life.
The Multicultural Policy draws on the economic and social benefits of cultural, religious and linguistic diversity. It promotes social cohesion and addresses the need to balance the rights and responsibilities of all citizens.
Importantly, the ability to enhance our dynamic and productive multicultural society will be a significant influence on the success of the State in the future.

The Discussion Paper considered the current multicultural principles, and raised a number of questions about key areas of multiculturalism, including:
Submissions from the public will inform the development of the new Tasmanian Multicultural Policy to be released by the end of 2013.
