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 Amanda Charania or call 613-257-6222.
In the recognition that the Sister Cities trips can be difficult to afford for some families, in special circumstances financial assistance may be available for student applicants who request it. Any such request will be considered in confidence and the applicant will be notified of the sponsoring committee’s decision
Carleton Place Sister City Committee hosts "Wine'd Around Downtown" annually to raise funds for the exchange program.
