WA Multicultural Policy Framework

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Western Australian Multicultural Policy Framework (WA MPF) was endorsed by Cabinet in February 2020. It translates the principles and objectives of the Western Australian Charter of Multiculturalism into three multicultural policy priorities for WA public sector agencies:​

  1. Harmonious and inclusive communities
  2. Culturally responsive policies, programs and services
  3. Economic, social, cultural, civic and political participation.​​
