Yes it would but if here on the IEC and the TWP has expired then the individual has no official status and therefore can be removed as there is no Implied Status provisions.

I suppose someone needs to tell her that then as I got the impression that she gives these seminars on a somewhat regular basis.

I called CIC, was informed that even though I'm on the IEC program I could continue to work, on implied status, if I applied for a regular TWP through the normal route, including getting an LMO.

Drawback is that they could reject my application for a TWP in just a couple of weeks, so I wouldn't have that implied status for as long as I would require.

Which is exactly what that lawyer said minus the part about getting an LMO, apparently it is taking them roughly 6 months to even open an extension application at the moment though.

No comment on consistency when calling CIC. Did you call the CIC call centre at 1 888 242 2100 by any chance?

Have you bothered to read the processing times?at : http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/temp.asp Work permit applications are now being processed in 15-27 days, which is a bit less than roughly 6 months.

I'm just reciting what she told me and I suppose what is on there is a best case scenario.

Not that is the processing time for the majority of the applications.
