The Migrant Centre Organisation Inc. (TMC) is a not-for-profit community-based organisation incorporated in March 2001. It is governed by a volunteer management committee, managed by a small professional team with the help of volunteers who come from all walks of life. The organisation promotes the benefits of multiculturalism, plurism of opinion, and the contribution of all migrant communities. TMC strongly believes in the value that migrants bring to Australian society through the sharing of culture, language and religion.
