Welcome

Welcome by the Ambassador

My team and I welcome you to the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Ottawa. This Embassy, in collaboration with our two General Consulates in Montreal (for Eastern Canada) and Vancouver (for Western Canada) represents Switzerland in Canada but also in the Bahamas.
Our main objectives are to foster the excellent relations existing between Switzerland and these two countries and to promote and protect the interests of Switzerland and our citizens. This includes the deepening of our political cooperation both bilaterally and in the field of multilateral diplomacy, mutually beneficial economic relations, cooperation in the fields of science and education and cultural exchanges of many sorts.
For trade activities between Canada and Switzerland the Swiss Business Hub in Montreal is a great new asset to effectively complement the efforts of both our General Consulates and the Embassy.

This website offers a broad range of information on our activities. In order to make administrative procedures easier, forms are available on-line for you to download. Furthermore, you will find information on Swiss associations and Swiss clubs in Canada.
I hope you enjoy visiting our website and find it useful. Do not hesitate to contact us with suggestions, observations or questions.

Thank you for your visit.

Dr. Beat Nobs
Ambassador of Switzerland to Canada and the Bahamas
