The Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) established eight Regional Advisory Councils across the state in 2012. The role of the Regional Advisory Councils are to:
- Inform the Commission about issues and challenges impacting multicultural communities in their region.
- Keep the Commission abreast on matters of multicultural affairs, settlement, access to services and citizenships issues, including equitable outcomes for multicultural communities.
- Assist the Commission in its commitment to multicultural affairs in the local regions, including promoting the benefits of cultural, linguistic and religious diversity.
- Identify potential pathways and opportunities for participation and connecting communities, activities and events to strengthen community capacity.
Three Regional Advisory Councils are based in Melbourne and surrounds - Eastern Metropolitan, North & West Metropolitan and Southern Metropolitan - and five are based in rural and regional Victoria - Baron South West, Hume, Loddon Mallee, Gippsland and Grampians. Each Regional Advisory Council is comprised of:
- local community members;
- local service providers delivering services to migrant and multicultural communities;
- local business and community representatives; and
- local government representatives.
