Supportive Multicultural Association
CQMA is an independent, not-for-profit association incorporated in 2010 for the purpose of promoting multiculturalism and community harmony for all people in Central Queensland. Our volunteers and staff respect the social and cultural benefits that arise from cultural diversity and value the innovative, creative and economic development opportunities it fosters for our community.
We provide community programs and courses for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. Our services also include activities and events that celebrate cultural diversity and promote community harmony.
We advocate for, and are focussed upon, the grass roots need of the many CALD communities and individuals in the Rockhampton region.
What We Do
CQMA celebrates all our cultural differences and offers a range of educational, informative and inclusive activities designed to remove barriers and improve participation rates for all of the Rockhampton region’s CALD community members. Whether you are new to the region or have been here for many years already, we have something for you.
We receive fantastic support from the CQ University, our wonderful federal and state Members of Parliament, local councillors and many local service providers. Most importantly we have deep connections with the members of our regions many CALD community associations.
