  1. I am so proud to be a naturalized Swiss citizen. Thanks to my wife, my in-laws, friends in Switzerland and to the Vancouver Swiss Consulate for helping me through the process.

  2. My Swiss-Canadian connection is that I have worked with a few people who had the privelage to work at CERN . They told me many wonderfull stories about the people and culture there. I am also a great swiss chocolate fan .

  3. I am incredibly proud to be a Swiss Canadian! My parents emigrated from Switzerland just before I was born and as a result, I am the only Canadian-born member of the family. As the youngest in the family, I endured my fair share of ribbing of this fact over the years but now that I am almost 40 – I figured out that I am in a pretty special position! I am born in Canada AND have a Swiss passport to boot! How lucky can a girl get??!!

  4. All great comments, thank you! I have already entered Frank, Nancy, Kamlesh, Jessica and Allan into the contest but unfortunately, no more WordPress entries will be accepted. We would appreciate it if you could repost them to facebook or twitter.

  5. The last time I entered the Zurich passcontrol and they saw my name in the Canadian passport, they said: “You are Swiss, show your Swiss passport and stay as long as you want. What a welcome, what a feeling.

  6. Jo Heiland Donner, ond was machd me wemmer kei Feissbuk hed zom trotzdem chönne gwönne? But it is all about participation and not about winning a prize. I will miss some of the activities in this centennial year as I am heading back to Switzerland for a few months. Stories from my journey will be shared at Good luck to everybody!

  7. Grüetzi!!
    I am proud to be a Swiss Canadian! My 94-year-old Oma lives in Switzerland and I visit her every summer. My mother is Swiss and, though my sisters and I were born in Canada, we are “jass”-playing, yodelling, chocolate lovers who proudly wave our swiss flags whenever given the chance! My cupboards are filled with Swiss kitchenware, my keychain says “I love Switzerland,” my car has the CH sticker and, in my office, I proudly display the Frauenfeld flag of the fräuli mitem leuli! Yay Schweiz!!
