SalvAide's Twin Community Program links rural communities in El Salvador with a diversity of organizations in Canadian communities. This initiative helps us foster lasting people-to-people ties between Canadian and Salvadorans.

Religious groups, municipalities, civic organizations, and trade unions are all part of the Twin Community Program and give each relationship its own distinctive character and perspective. These groups, though different in their approach and mandate, work independently towards a common goal: to foster solidarity between the people of El Salvador and Canada while promoting international understanding of social and economic justice.

Currently 14 communities in Canada are twinned with rural communities in El Salvador:

  • Loretto Sisters (Canada-U.S.) with La Bermuda, Cuscatlán
  • Windsor Twin City Project with Las Vueltas, Chalatenango
  • St. Anne's Parish, Windsor with Immaculate Conception, Las Vueltas, Chalatenango
  • Windsor District Labour Council with Cooperative of Las Vueltas
  • Sisters of St. Joseph of London with Church of Las Vueltas, Chalatenango
  • Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton with Valle de Jesús, Chalatenango
  • School Sisters of Notre Dame with El Barillo, Cuscatlán
  • Holy Name of Jesus Parish of Essex with Copapayo, Cuscatlán
  • Sisters of Service of Toronto with Pepeistenango, Cuscatlán
  • St. Peter's Cathedral, London with Ita Maura, La Libertad
  • Kenora Sanctuary Committee with Agua Caliente, Cuscatlán
  • King's College Chapel Community with San Antonio Los Ranchos, Chalatenango
