Together with my colleagues, I welcome you to the official website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Montreal.

Opened in 1875, the Consulate General’s primary goal is to promote and safeguard the interests of Switzerland and its citizens residing in the provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Territory of Nunavut as well its compatriots living in the Bahamas. Along with the Embassy in Ottawa and the Consulate General in Vancouver, the Consulate General in Montreal completes the network of three Swiss representations in Canada and is assisted by an Honorary Consul  based in Toronto, in Quebec City, in Halifax and in the Bahamas. Also, the Swiss Business Hub is based within the walls of the Consulate General in Montreal, its mission is to promote trade between Switzerland and Canada.

The Consulate General’s website offers a wide range of information in relation to its consular, social, political, economic, commercial and cultural activities. Downloadable forms to simplify administrative procedures, as well as information about Swiss clubs and associations in Eastern Canada may also be found on the official website.

I hope that exploring our Representation's website will be a practical and enjoyable experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions, comments or questions.
