Default Implied status and common law sponsorship

I'm currently on a working holiday visa issued through the IEC program and I have been informed by my lawyer that I can apply for an extension so that I can work under implied status for a little longer. My employer is OK with this but they want to see some proof that the application has been received and is being processed. Is this the case with applications to extend a temporary work permit or will I only have proof of postage to show them?

I'm applying for PR via sponsorship for my girlfriend so I want to work for as long as possible. If anyone else has been in a similar position and has some advice it would be much appreciated!

Sorry, but you cannot extend an IEC working holiday visa and you cannot continue to work. You will need to apply (online) to change to a visitor status if you want to remain in Canada after your IEC visa expires.

I would suggest you apply for another IEC visa when they start accepting applications on 1st February, that way you will be able to continue to work whilst your PR application is being processed, provided you meet the criteria.

False! Tell your lawyer to read the rules.
