The calendar has been updated and it shows that the state visit is concluded in Gothenburg on the 23rd, with the King and Prince Carl Philip as participants. The other days are set to be Stockholm, Lund and Malmö with the King and Queen. I know from Lund University that they will receive the guests on the 22nd, thus spending that day in Malmö and Lund.

Usually only the King and Queen are listed in the calendar (for some reason) even though other family members attend at some events during the state visit, e.g. welcome ceremony, state banquet.

In conjunction with the state visit from Canada King Carl Gustaf and the Governor General of Canada, H.E. David Johnston attend at a seminar on 21st February.
In anticipation of the implementation of the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) in 2017, Canada and Sweden look to strengthen economic ties and encourage increased trade and investment between Swedish and Canadian companies.
The seminar will be opened by Business Sweden’s CEO Ylva Berg, followed by remarks from Governor General H.E. David Johnston and Minister for EU Affairs and Trade Ann Linde.

Program from the website of the Governor General of Canada.
According to the program, Carl Philip and Sofia will attend at the audience when the visit starts. Victoria and Daniel are not mentioned at the program, so it seems they don't take part at the visit.

Margareta Thorgren confirmed today to Svensk Damtidning, that Madeleine and Chris are attending at the first day of the state visit: the welcoming of the guests, the lunch and the state banquet on the first day. They are staying in Sweden for some days.

So it seems that Chris could skip his work and the family comes to Sweden to celebrate Leonore's birthday.

I wonder why Victoria and Daniel won't be there. Do they have any other scheduled events on the days of the Canadian state visit ?

The news about Victoria and Daniel are at their threads.

The director of the press department, Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning about why queen Silvia doesn't attend at the last day of the visit:
- The Queen takes part on three days of the state visit. On Thursday, the Queen has other planned unofficial commitments.

The Nine Prong for Queen Silvia and a light blue gown.
The Amethists for princess Sofia for the first time with a dark blue gown! She's debuting a lot of family tiaras recently. Sadly enough not with an updo, again with the strange hairstyle. The combination between blue gown and purple tiara seems strange. We'll see how it ends up in better pics.
The Aquamarine tiara for Princess Madeleine.
