The South Australian Multicultural and Ethnic Affairs Commission Act 1980 is the only piece of legislation specific to multicultural affairs.
It was enacted 39 years ago and has not undergone major review in 30 years. A review of the Act provides the opportunity to develop fresh legislation that affirms the government’s commitment to multiculturalism and its importance to South Australia.
We need legislation that sets a foundation for the development of new multicultural policy that reflects the state’s cultural, linguistic and religious diversity, recognises the valuable contribution of our diverse communities and supports the development of culturally responsive government services.
