The friendship between Mia Jones and Chantay Black possibly formed sometime during season 7.

Chantay and Mia began as rivals when when Mia first came to Degrassi in season 6. Along with Darcy, Chantay shunned Mia, and forbade her from joining the Spirit Squad due to her having a child. However, overtime Chantay and Mia managed to sort out their differences, and became good friends.
