The Voice of Multicultural Victoria

Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) is proud to be the peak body for our state’s migrant and refugee communities. Since 1974, we have been advocating for the rights of multicultural communities, informing industry practice and influencing governments at all levels on a range of issues, including anti-racism, equitable access to services and socially just policy.
