23 avril 2018

Saint-Laurent, April 23, 2018 - Saint-Laurent residents age 55 and over are invited to submit an application to participate in the exchange trip between the City of Lethbridge, Alberta and the Borough of Saint-Laurent. Since 1967, this activity has been providing the residents of both communities with an opportunity to become better acquainted with Canada's cultural diversity and also the country's wealth of heritage and history.

The Saint-Laurent participants will stay at the homes of their "twins" in Lethbridge from July 4 to July 11. Then in turn, they will play host to the members of the Albertan delegation, August 8-15, to accompany them on a tour to discover Saint-Laurent and Greater Montréal.

A free trip
All transportation expenses (airplane tickets, public transit and insurance) as well as activities and meals during the group outings will be paid by Saint-Laurent and the City of Lethbridge. As for the participants, they will have to provide their "twin" with accommodations (food and shelter) as well as local transportation.

An overview of life in Alberta
Within every edition of this exchange, the City of Lethbridge prepares a wide range of activities to give the Saint-Laurent participants a chance to familiarize themselves with life in this area as well as with the culture of southern Alberta. Tours of some of Western Canada's landmarks, such as Waterton National Park, the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump and Fort Whoop-Up, are regularly included. More information on Lethbridge may be found on this city's Internet site at www.lethbridge.ca.
