Chat with one of our members and find out more about what the Association does. While visiting you may even get a chance to listen and dance a bit to the steel drums.
An official Twinning Ceremony took place on October 4, 1968 to recognize and celebrate the similarities of the City of St. Catharines and the City of Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago. The event was held in Port of Spain and declared under the United Nations the Mundialization of St. Catharines and the Twinning of our two cities. The Twinning Association has by understanding and appreciating each other's cultures and people's, celebrating our commonalities and our differences, broken the bonds of race, colour and creed, forging friendships into family for the past 55 years. It is the mission of the St. Catharines Twinning Association to seek an understanding of other cultures and societies; to explore common interests, educational, and business opportunities by holding their hands out in friendship to like-minded people in other communities.
