Sister Cities

Thunder Bay City Council has established a Twinning Relationship Policy and a Sister Cities Advisory Committee for the purpose of developing mutually beneficial economic and cultural interaction between communities. As economic development is the focus of Thunder Bay’s program, municipal twinning provides an opportunity for both parties.

The City of Thunder Bay currently has four Sister Cities outside of Canada.
