Greater Shepparton City Council are seeking input from the community on what they believe to be important matters on the multicultural community.
The new strategy will build on the previous strategy, helping Council support its vibrant, cohesive community as well as strengthen partnerships with communities, service providers and other stakeholders.
Greater Shepparton Mayor Councillor Kim O’Keeffe said Council’s vision for this region is of a vibrant, cohesive society which celebrates and incorporates aspects of cultural diversity within daily life.
“It is important that Greater Shepparton continues to be a welcoming place for migrants and provides opportunities for the CALD community,” Cr O’Keeffe said.
“I encourage people to fill out a short survey and provide their ideas on multiculturalism in Greater Shepparton. If you would like to meet with a staff member to provide your thoughts, contact the Council office.”
Community feedback is welcomed via the following methods, with submissions closing 5pm Friday, 19 October:
