About Us

What is the role of the Multicultural Advocate at ECCQ?

 

  • The Multicultural Advocate works with and for people from established and new migrant and refugee communities and the organizations that support them. The goal is to increase the responsiveness of government systems, or other systems or services, to the needs of ethnic communities. It is a statewide position, meaning that the issues the worker will tackle are those that affect ethnic communities throughout the state. The method of work is systems advocacy.

 

 

 

What is systems advocacy?

  • Systems advocacy is the process of working to achieve positive changes with and for a group of people; in this case, migrants and refugees. It is about doing a range of things to influence governments, both politicians and public servants, to improve policies, legislation, practices, resource allocation, and attitudes.
