Crown Prince Couple of Norway’s third day in Canada

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess began the day by attending a seminar on diversity, which was held at the Centre for Social Innovation in downtown Toronto. After this, they went to the MaRS Center. This is a centre that promotes innovation, and the Crown Prince and Crown Princess were able to learn about new Canadian firms, particularly new firms that focus on medical technology. The two had a tight schedule and went on to a seminar on tunnel technology. After this seminar, the Crown Prince and the Crown Princess had lunch.

The Norwegian Royal Court will continuously add new pictures from the visit. You can see the images here.

Yesterday’s lunch was held by Canadian business leaders based in Toronto. Here Their Royal Highnesses had the opportunity to talk with Canadian business leaders and create a bond between the economic powers from both nations.

After the lunch had been finished, they went on to Little Norway Park. This memory park is dedicated to the Little Norway airport that was used to train Norwegian pilots during WWII. The park is a living monument to the common war history that Canada and Norway share. The park was originally opened by Crown Prince Haakon’s father, King Harald (who was then Crown Prince), in 1976, and in 1987, King Olav of Norway was there and visited the park.

Today in St. Johns, they will see offshore simulators on a tour of the Marine Institute and hear about Arctic safety and emergency preparedness, as well as attend a luncheon for companies in the aquaculture and oil and gas industries. They will also speak with the media later today at the conclusion of their trip.
