Saint Laurent Exchange


Background:

Saint-Laurent, Quebec is the official twin city of Lethbridge. In 1967, the two communities entered into a formal city-to-city twinning arrangement. The twinning arrangement was part of a Canadian Centennial Project to promote cultural and social relationships.

The exchange has played a positive role in cementing relations between Eastern and Western Canada. Each year a citizen exchange takes place, alternating between senior citizens and students.

In 2017, Saint-Laurent and the City of Lethbridge will be celebrating 50 years of friendship. Over the past 50 years, 600+ residents from eastern and western Canada have had an opportunity to participate in this program. To commemorate the occasion, special events are being held in both communities.
