Default IEC to visitor with OWP app in process

Hi

My IEC visa is due to expire at the end of march and I have an application in for my spousal sponsorship with an OWP in process too. Can I flagpole in order to change my status to a visitor? will me leaving have an effect on my applications?

Thanks in advance.

Can't you just switch to visitor status online? To save the possibility of being denied at the border for whatever reason?

Application to Change Conditions or Extend Your Stay in Canada as a Visitor

costs $100, submit as much evidence as possible as to how you'll support yourself, why you want to change status etc.

You can remain in Canada until a decision is made (if IEC expires before), and no need to go to border if approved. You will however need to go to the border when you get your work permit approval.

Thanks
Will I be allowed to stay on implied status for the decision as looks like processing time is 38 days from within Canada.

Initial temporary resident permit or extension of temporary resident permit
Extension of my temporary resident status
