Yes, I'd agree that, for salary purposes, it'd be good to have a Swiss address. But you cannot have this, officially, unless you are resident (registered as such) here. You cannot simply register, just like that, based on no work, if you are Canadian.
Come on guys. If half his family works in Geneva he can probably slap a relative's address on there without too much of a problem. He's applying for a job, not registering with the Gemeinde, and with a French passport there will be no permit issues for now.

Re: Risks of quitting job to move the Geneva

After only a week I got an invitation for an interview from one of two jobs I had applied too. But, I also got a letter the same day from the French administration that's it going to take months before I get my papers. Months! One month has already passed since I made my request.

The positive is that theirs interest for my experience and we've reconvened once the papers are in my possession.

Great that you've got that invitation.
Would the French administration tell you whether there is anything you could do to speed up the process if you were actually to visit France, as opposed to doing it from Canada?
