Purpose of HMC

Hamilton Mundialization Committee and City of Hamilton

Some of the key purposes of mundialization are to promote Hamilton as a World City dedicated to global awareness, international co-operation and world law; to undertake twinning programs in international cooperation with like-minded municipalities; and to involve citizens of Hamilton from different cultures, especially those from the countries of our sister communities, to share in our multicultural programs.

The Hamilton Mundialization Committee is a council mandated advisory committee of the City of Hamilton. The committee’s purpose is to assist city council in implementing its mundialization resolution and it serves to maintain and build the relationships between Hamilton and its ten twin cities around the world and to support local peace work and initiatives.
