On September 21st, International Peace Day, Hl Canada donated $1 to the Youth Travel Foundation for each overnight spent in its participating hostels. The amount collected will be distributed through the Sleep for Peace grant. This initiative, which took place for the second consecutive year, is part of the awareness program developed by Hostelling International to promote the role of youth tourism in creating a more tolerant, peaceful and accepting world.
