PACE participants will get to visit multiple cities on the west coast of Canada; specifically the lower mainland of British Columbia, as well as Vancouver Island. Past trips have included visits to Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Victoria, Squamish, Whistler, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Port Moody.
Six participants from different countries will be selected. We are looking for three men and three women between the ages of 19-30.

The program is heavily financially sponsored and subsidized by Rotary and Rotaract Clubs of District 5040. Participants are required to pay a participant fee of $465 CAD, which will cover the costs of program accommodation, activities, transportation between cities, and three meals daily.
Participants are responsible for travel costs to and from Vancouver, personal items, alcohol, and insurance.
