Diversity

Whitehorse is a community of diverse cultures, languages, beliefs, lifestyles, identities, interests and aspirations. Whitehorse City Council is proud of this diversity and the vibrancy it brings to community life.

The Whitehorse Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021 ( PDF 2.45MB) outlines the ways in which Council will support, promote and celebrate diversity in our community; working towards a community that recognises, includes and welcomes everyone.

Today approximately 38 per cent of Whitehorse residents were born overseas, 33 per cent come from countries where English is not the first language, more than 114 different languages are spoken at home, and almost two thirds of our residents identify with a specific religion (Census 2016).
