About the Federation of Indian Communities Queensland

The Federation of Indian Communities of Queensland Inc (FICQ) is the peak umbrella body consisting of over 40 Indian organisations, which represent people of Indian origin now living in Queensland. The migration of these people of Indian Origin is truly diverse as they hail from varied nationalities including, but not limited to, India, Fiji Islands, Republic of South Africa, Malaysia, United Kingdom and many others.This non-profit organisation was formed in 1998 to provide a common platform in representing the Indian Community at all levels of government and other institutions. Today FICQ represents about 100,000 Australian citizens/permanent residents of Indian diaspora and Indian overseas students living in Queensland. We feel extremely proud that FICQ is also the largest Indian Federation in Australia.An important role of FICQ is to facilitate amongst the various Indian organisations to work together as one group on common issues for the benefit of all Indians or people of Indian origin in Queensland. Membership of the FICQ is open to all organisations who identify with India or who are of Indian sub-continent origin that are constitutionally structured and incorporated. If you belong to an organisation, which identifies itself with Indian values, we encourage you to join FICQ, so that we can build a strong Indian community in Queensland.
