Intercultural Twinning

The intercultural twinning program allows Quebecers and newcomers to create links and share about their respective cultures.

Why become a host twin?

  • To discover a new culture and discover yours
  • To expand your social network and that of your twin
  • To develop friendly links
  • To facilitate the social, linguistic and cultural integration of newcomers

Examples of possible sharing activities:

  • Go for coffee
  • Visit tourist attractions of the region
  • Museum, shows, exhibitions, …
  • Cook together
  • Play board games
  • Walking and other outdoor activities
  • Play a sport
  • If necessary, accompany the newcomer to the grocery store or store for the choice of clothing adapted to the season
  • Circulate in the area to provide landmarks
