Dear website visitors, dear friends of Switzerland,

Mi chexw uys, Grüessech, Bonjour, Buongiorno, Allegra!

Welcome to the website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Vancouver, Switzerland's outpost in Western Canada!

In addition to providing traditional consular services, we are committed to building new economic, cultural, educational and academic relationships and nurturing existing ones. We are always looking for new ways to improve the already excellent relations between Switzerland and Western Canada, which includes the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

It goes without saying that the Consulate General supports also the local Swiss community and its various organisations: the Swiss-Canadian Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) and the many Swiss associations in our consular district.

Please subscribe to our newsletter if you would like to be informed about our events, such as the Swiss Film Club.

And if you would like to know more about Switzerland, please visit About Switzerland. There you will find information about society, the political system, customs and traditions, education, environment, etc.

My team and I are looking forward to putting Switzerland on the map and connecting with you in one way or another.

Thank you for your interest in Switzerland.

Kind regards,

Thomas Schneider
Consul General
