LONDON (AP) - Kensington Palace has announced that Prince William and his wife Kate will bring their two young children on an official visit to Canada later this month. A limited number of parents will have the chance to meet with the Duke and Duchess where the couple, who are also parents to two young children, will talk about the role parents can take to encourage their children to talk about big changes they are undergoing. During their week-long visit, they toured various facilities, including Jeneec's Place at Victoria General Hospital, Our Place Society, the University of Victoria and the Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities in September 2014.

They will meet a wide range of people, including young Canadian leaders in business, film, sport, and music, members of the Canadian Rangers, Syrian refugees and some of the staff and volunteers who support the 25,000 migrants who arrive in Canada each year.

In addition to trips to Bella Bella and the Great Bear Rainforest, the royal couple is also scheduled to spend a day in Kelowna before flying to Whitehorse on September 27. The Duke and Duchess will then travel the scenic Klondike Highway to the town of Carcross where they will receive a traditional welcome from the Carcross/Tagish Fist Nation.

On the day of their arrival, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge will attend a ceremony at British Columbia's Parliament Buildings, where they will unveil a plaque at Victoria's Cenotaph honouring Canadian veterans of the Afghanistan conflict.

Before travelling to the Yukon, the Royal Family will spend a day in Kelowna, the Okanagan Valley.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, continue their fight against the stigma surrounding mental health problems.
