Sister Cities Twinning Program
Carleton Place is involved in the Sister Cities Twinning Program and has partnered with Comrie in Scotland and Franklin in Tennessee, USA.
The Sister City program promotes the agreement between communities in different countries to encourage the expansion of activities designed to help each other develop an understanding of historical, lifestyle and cultural similarities and differences.
Carleton Place has successfully run a Student Exchange Program with Franklin in recent years and we have started a similar program with Comrie. If you are a student and you are interested in participating and would like an application form, or for further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org call 613-257-3822.
