As part of their official visit to Canada, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway will join Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34 Don Valley East) and City of Toronto staff for a ceremony at Toronto's Little Norway Memorial Park. The park commemorates Little Norway Training Camp, a training facility for Norwegian fighter pilots during the Second World War.

Date: Wednesday, November 9
Time: 2:30 p.m.
Location: Little Norway Memorial Park, 659 Queens Quay W.

The Crown Prince and Crown Princess will visit Toronto, as well as Ottawa and St. John's, from November 7 to 10. The Canadian visit will reinforce bilateral connections between Canada and Norway, highlight common interests in the Arctic and demonstrate how the two countries can work together to stimulate innovation and diversity.

This event is open to the general public as well as media.
