Returning back to Canada/pension issues

Have learned Cda does not have reciprocal tax agreements with Swiss, as does US..so it looks like I might be taxed twice if I pull my $$ out. Does anyone know of a english speaking tax/pension advisor in Zurich who might be able to help? Or any other expat Canadian in same shoes if thinking of retuning home?

Re: Returning back to Canada/pension issues

Canada and Switzerland have a tax treaty. You can find it at the below link

As far as I know, if you cash out your Pillar 2/3 while you are in Switzerland, then they are taxed only in Switzerland. Perhaps it might be different if you return to Canada, wait, and then cash it out?
