Italian language test for Ticino for C permit (UK citizen)?

Does anyone know if an Italian language proficiency test is required to move from a B to a C permit after 5 years (UK citizen)? I know it depends on the canton, but I have not been able to find any information that states anything specific on the subject.

Might anyone else know?

Cheers.

Tom probably will. Otherwise, ask your cantonal migration office.

I looked on the Ticino website and couldn't find anything that would indicate that an Italian language test/certification was required for a C permit.

I couldn't either. So, maybe I should just assume that if it doesn't say it, it is okay? I do think the German ones who do require it do indicate as such.

I speak so-so Italian and actually write better than I speak. I do want to learn it better for lots of reasons, but also want to be prepared if indeed they do require it.

There's this page on their website that mentions an A2 language proficiency level being needed if you go for the early C permit application (Art. 34.4 AuG/LStr) after 5 years.
However, as a UK citizen you can also apply for the C permit under the normal procedure after 5 years which is also mentioned on that same page:

(In virtù degli accordi di domicilio o di considerazioni di reciprocità per UE-15 (... Regno Unito ...) il permesso di domicilio può essere rilasciato dopo 5 anni.
They don't really mention anything regarding a language level certification requirement under the normal C permit application procedure but I'd call and ask them just to be sure.

Very helpful. I should have looked under "Sportello". I already did the A2 course at Migros, so hopefully it is enough. But I will call anyway. Cheers!
