They will participate in various activities in Victoria, Vancouver and Kelowna, as well as visit the Ditidaht and 'Namgis First Nations on Vancouver Island.

Highlights of the visit include presentation of the Duke of Edinburgh gold awards in Victoria and Kelowna, and a walk on a portion of the Trans-Canada Trail through North Vancouver.
