Default 2023 EE category-based selection

Hi everyone,

Haven't seen details/opinions on this on the forum, just that it's not clear what the criteria will be for targeted EE draws this year.
Just curious, is this because the general opinion is that there will be additional requirements to the ones published?
I'm not allowed to post URLs yet but the criteria-based selection is on the IRCC website.

For example for French skills it currently states that you would need a minimum NLC level of 7 in all abilities. I am sitting the TCF in September and wondering if 7 will be enough, or whether when they finally announce a targeted draw they can add additional requirements or raise the level needed?
I can't apply without French skills anyway (need both IELTS and TCF to get enough points) so our application won't be done until autumn when I get the French results back. Still, wondering if it's a moving target or the only requirements are those already stated on the website. Our points are somewhere between 480 and 490 and from recent draws 480 looks to be below the cut-off, I think being selected for French skills might be our best bet so wondering what everyone thinks about the category-based selection that's been announced.

No, it's because they were only announced a few days ago.

I'm sure the requirements will change in line with labour demand (just like the old list of 30 or so eligible occupations for FSW that changed every 6-12 months), but probably not for a while. They'll give it a while and see how it goes I'd imagine, then tweak it.

Good luck with your French exam, hope it gets you an invite.

Got it, thank you for the reply! Fingers crossed there is a round of invitations for French skills towards the end of the year 😊
