Default Visitor visa extension

hi there
So i entered canada in april to be with my partner as we wait for my application to be processed, (getting processed in London). I got a stamp in my passport, but they wrote in it "VO8OCT2008" and initialed it.
Now does that mean if i apply for another visitor visa come september it will automatically be refused because of that date they wrote in there?
Or would it work if I just go down to the states and come back hoping they'll just stamp my passport for another 6 months?

Relax.

First of all, your PR visa may have come through by the time your current visitor status expires.

Secondly, you can apply to extend your stay in Canada as a visitor. You should submit the application to extend your stay at least 30 days before the expiration of your current status. That application goes to the Case Processing Centre in Vegreville, Alberta. You probably won't hear back from them within 30 days. But, as long as you've lodged the application for an extension, you have "implied" authorization to remain in Canada. When they do approve your application for an extension, they'll probably give you another six months. To enjoy this extension of your visitor status, you will not have to leave Canada for the proverbial trip around the flagpole. You'll simply be allowed to stay on in Canada.

See Citizenship and Immigration Canada's web page called Visiting Canada: Extending your stay.
