Cost of Living in Switzerland

Hi,

I may have an opportunity to move to Switzerland outside of Zurich and I am wondering how expensive it is to live there.

According to online Cost of Living comparison websites, Zurich is 1.5x that of Ottawa, Canada where I live.

ALong with that info, I would be interested in the experience of people what live or have lived there. I have been there a couple of times and it certainly seemed expensive.

Thanks for any info.
Cheers,
Antica
