Thorpe St Andrew has become twinned with St Andrews in New Brunswick, Canada.
The two towns are more than 3,000 miles apart from each other, but it is hoped the twinning will create links between groups and businesses in both areas.
Town clerk Thomas Foreman said: 'We are setting up a twinning working group, for community groups to play an active role in leading this process forward, and any groups interested should make contact with the town council office.
'The council is very clear that any visits would be self-funded with no cost to the taxpayer.'
Thorpe St Andrew Town Council said the use of email and video calling will make linking the two communities easier.
