Logan is home to people from over 217 different nationalities and cultures. Over a quarter of residents were born overseas, and almost 16 percent speak another language other than English at home.
Our diversity is part of our identity as a city. We can experience amazing cultures and foods and connect with people from all around the world at our doorstep. Embracing our diversity also means supporting welcoming and inclusive spaces, workforces and neighbourhoods.
Read on to find out some of the ways that we are encouraging a welcoming and inclusive city for our diverse communities.
