Each trip is meant to combine a good balance of academic and cultural components. Incumbents have a chance to visit several research institutions in Moscow and St.Petersburg, as well as representatives of the diplomatic community, civil society and mass media connected with Canadian-Russian studies in Russia. In turn, Russian students are invited to see universities and research centres with Russian studies programs in British Columbia. Guided tours, museums, performances are included in the program.
