Swiss clubs

These clubs’ aim is to bring together the Swiss community present in a foreign country. They offer their members the opportunity to exchange views, share experiences about life in the country of residence and obtain useful information.

The clubs organize Swiss-related events (e.g. the national day on August 1st) which are an opportunity to make contacts and to have a good time with other Swiss nationals.

Federation of Swiss Societies of Eastern Canada

The Federation of Swiss Societies has, as its mandate, the promotion of Swiss culture and events on behalf of its Member and Affiliate Clubs and Societies. The primary such event is the organisation and staging of the Swiss National Day celebration which is held annually since 1977 on Mount Sutton, in the Eastern Townships. The event is staged on the Saturday that falls closest to August 1st. 

The Members of the Federation are the many Swiss Clubs and Organisations in whose interest the Federation acts. Its Board of Directors consists of individuals elected from among the member clubs and societies. 

Only Swiss Clubs and Societies, rather than individuals, can become members or affiliated members of the Federation.
