Vancouver to Paris, and then Barcelona (or Italy, or Croatia) to Amsterdam, and then Amsterdam to Vancouver - in the $600s CAD for all 3 flights
Air France and KLM continue with their very significant price drops from Vancouver to Europe for spring 2016 travel.
These price drops are making for some *very* interesting multi-city prices, where you can fly to multiple cities within Europe and still keep the price very low, in the $600s CAD for all 3 flights.
These prices are also some of the best to Europe for 2016 travel from anywhere in North America. Even the Americans are jealous of these prices right now.
Even from New York City, generally the home of the craziest prices between North America and Europe, it would cost you nearly twice as much for the same trip...
From Seattle, it would be closer to $1400 CAD...
2016: January through April & into early May
(with April & early May likely being the most desirable months for most)
Update: There's one date combination from mid June to late June that works too. See below.

Getting from Paris to Barcelona, Florence, or Zagreb
You'll notice that this multi-city flight does still leave you needing to get from Paris to Barcelona, Florence (aka Tuscany), or Zagreb.
Paris to Barcelona will generally be the cheapest, at around $60 to $100 CAD, usually on RyanAir or Transavia.
Note that they generally use Paris's ORY or BVA airports, which are not the same as the main international one you fly into (CDG).
example search for Paris to Barcelona
Paris to Florence would be a little more, at around $130-$150 CAD. Although you may also want to look at flying from Paris to Rome (generally quite cheap, at $60 to $80 on RyanAir or EasyJet) and then taking the train from Rome to Florence - a popular route that should only cost around $60.
example search for Paris to Florence
Paris to Zagreb would be the priciest of them all, at around $150-$250 CAD, but considering the fact that Vancouver to Croatia is generally $1200+ roundtrip on it's own, getting there and back (with Paris and Amsterdam thrown in as a bonus) for under $900 is still pretty notable.

Substituting other Europe cities
You can also try substituting other cities in Europe for Barcelona, Florence, or Zagreb. For many of them, the price result comes up in the $700s and $800s.
Barcelona, Florence, and Zagreb are the only ones I've seen that result in a total price in the $600s.
FlightHub is showing the one involving Florence, Italy for $584 CAD including taxes for all 3 flights

Mar 30 to April 13 to April 17 are the dates shown in the FlightHub screenshot, but the other date combinations from above seem to work as well.
