Considering Moving to Switzerland from the US (Zurich)



I am a Canadian living in the San Francisco Bay Area in the US with my husband. We moved here over a year and a half ago for a job opportunity. My Visa in the US expires in Protected content we've been seriously considering a move to Europe as I am also an EU citizen.

I have always dreamed of living in Switzerland, however the cost of living frightens me, especially since we will have our 1 and 1/2 year son with us. Is the cost of living really that much of a shock? Is it doable? The San Francisco Bay Area is expensive in and of itself so I'm not sure how it would compare to Switzerland. Also, I've heard that health care costs are extremely high. Coming from Canada, we are used to affordable universal healthcare, so that is also a worry, especially with a young child.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.
