Developing a Population Growth Strategy for Tasmania

The Population Growth Strategy has been developed in consultation with the Tasmanian community.

In April 2015 the Department of State Growth released a Population Discussion Paper outlining Tasmania's population challenge and the process for developing Tasmania's Population Growth Strategy. A Background Issues Paper by a specialist demographer was also commissioned to provide independent advice to inform the development of the Population Growth Strategy.

Contributions into the Strategy's development were invited from the Tasmanian community and key stakeholders through a period of public consultation between April and June 2015 and 41 submissions were received from organisations and interested individuals.
