Re: Impact of moving cantons just before C permit issuance.

Yes but a language requirement is a criteria for issuing a (early) C permit. so even if the canton change is approved by the new canton, they may only issue a B permit because the Non EU person does not satisfy the language requirements set by that canton. Please note different cantons have different language requirements (starting from A2 to B1). this is exactly what i am trying to find out. not only on the language aspect, some cantons may have a requirement that you must live in the canton for some years before they can issue a C permit. in that case, a Non EU goes from a C permit to a B permit simply because you have not met the residency requirements of the new canton for issuing a C permit.


and honestly, this is a big risk for Non EUs after all the hardwork of obtaining the C permit in one canton.

It is not a risk.
I repeat that a C permit remains a C permit after changing cantons.
You are confusing the process of getting a C permit for the first time, with the process of getting registered in a new canton.

If someone has A2 level and a B permit, changes cantons to one requiring B1 for a C permit, then they will have to show B1 level to get a C permit from the new canton.
If they get the C permit before changing cantons, the new canton will not ask for a B1 level to re-issue the C permit.

After canton change the new canton does not evaluate your residency as if you have recently arrived in Switzerland.
They just want to make sure you are a law abiding resident who is not dependent on welfare.

A C permit is federally issued by the Bund.
It does not make sense that, after getting one, you have "permanent residency" in only parts of Switzerland.

You realize this makes no sense at all - if you're just moving to a new canton you'd definitely not have enough years of residency there on the day you arrive so going by your 'formula' it would mean an automatic loss of C permit whenever you change cantons, which is definitely not what happens.
Also note that the difference between 'preferred' non-EU and other non-EU is only in the time required to obtain the initial C permit, afterwards all animals are equal and pigs aren't more equal than others. Therefore, if you hold a C permit you can change cantons as you please as long as there are no reasons to revoke or refuse the renewal of your permit (the same ones that would apply even if you remain in the same canton). No language requirements need to be met as you’re not getting your first C permit from the new canton, just exchanging an existing one.

Even for EU C permit holders the requirements can be different per K/Canton (especially on the language requirements)
After the C permit is issued it is ruled by the federal law on foreigner which says the C permit holder can change cantons. Period.

And canton is spelled with a small c in English. Please let's not proliferate Odile's little quirk.

A language certificate is not among the documents asked for during a canton change process.

So, no language certificate will be needed even if the cantons have differing language requirements.
Exactly!
