Many of the sister city activities are not led by the municipal governments but rather by
the citizens themselves. In Kariya, the Kariya International Friendship Association was
developed for this reason in 1983, while in Mississauga, the Mississauga Friendship Association
(MFA) was established in 1993. Together, they have hosted over 10 cultural exchanges
involving more than 150 delegates.
