The Cities of Richmond and Pierrefonds became twinned on July 29, 1967.  We marked the 40th anniversary of this relationship with Pierrefonds in 2007. The two cities pledged to promote cultural, tourist, and social and economic exchanges between their residents.

In 2008, the Sister City Advisory Committee hosted two students from Pierrefonds who attended the Zenith Global Citizenship Conference held for young leaders in the community.

Pierrefonds was a residential city located on the north west side of the island of Montreal. It has since become amalgamated as one of the boroughs of the new City of Montreal as Pierrefonds-Roxboro.The population of Pierrefonds-Roxboro is over 65,000.

For more information please visit the official  Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro (English Version) or Arrondissement Pierrefonds et Roxboro (French Version) website.
