The Royal Couple and Canada

During their tour, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will have the opportunity to highlight the important and inspiring work of Canadians in several areas that are close to their hearts.

Around the world, Canada is recognized as a champion of human rights; as a peacekeeper; a responsible steward of the environment and natural resources; and as a powerful and consistent example of diversity and the power of inclusion with, if I may say so, Canada’s commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples demonstrating a remarkable determination to forge an ever-better society.
