His longest trip was in 1959, when he joined Queen Elizabeth on an official tour of Canada, visiting all the provinces. They arrived on June 18 and left on August 1, making it a 45-day long stay. 

His last trip to Canada was a "private working" visit for two days in April 2013, when former Governor General David Johnson presented him with "the insignias of Companion of the Order of Canada and the Order of Military Merit." 

Three years prior to that in 2010, the Duke and the Queen made an official royal tour of Canada, lasting nine days and visiting Halifax, Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Toronto.
