The New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils Inc. was established in July 1989 as an incorporated, non-government body, which acts as an umbrella organisation for the ethnic communities of Aotearoa New Zealand. The Federation's primary role is to promote, support and share information among the Regional Councils and Aotearoa New Zealand's Ethnic Communities. The challenge for NZFMC is to provide an opportunity for people from all segments of Aotearoa New Zealand's diverse society to address the challenges facing our multicultural communities in the 21st century.

"Ethnic" means pertaining to or relating to any segment of the population within New Zealand society sharing fundamental cultural values, customs, beliefs, languages, traditions, and characteristics, which are different from those of the larger society.
