Zurich -B permit renewal worries

Hi there,

My B permit (EU) is expiring in October. The first B permit (5 years) was issued in Bern (year 2015) based on a permanent job that I had then. However that job was short lived and since then I started doing contract jobs.

In last 5 years I have changed 3 cantons (Bern, Vaud and Zurich) & my French is at A2 level and I have no knowledge of German. I’m a resident of Zurich canton since Jan 2019 and I do not qualify for C permit due to the language requirements.

My current contract ends in November 2020 (it may end before that if things go bad due to COVID19). I believe the Gemeinde sends out permit renewal papers 2 months in advance (so in my case August 2020). I have started looking for a new job but not sure if I will be able to find a new job soon.

What happens if I don't have a job when apply for permit renewal? Will I get another B permit for 5 years or Would they downgrade it to L?

btw I have full RAV/ORP entitlement (400 days). Also I have enough funds to prove I can support myself without job/benefits for next 5 years ( considering CHF 100 a day).
