A Relationship / Friendship Accord creates the opportunity to outline why and how two (or more) communities would like to build and sustain their relationship over the long term. These document are used to:

• provide structure, although this not a legal document or a business agreement
• inspire and guide the long-term relationship
• celebrate with the broader communities and regional partners
• formalize the spirit, intent and cooperative agreement of the partnership
