Default Work permit question?

I am in Canada on a 6 month visitor visa i will be sending my application off for sponsorship and applying for a work permit soon. But until then i have been told that in Canada i can get paid as an artist, Without a work visa dose anyone know if this is correct?

The only occupations that don't need a work permit for temporary work are listed in the link below,

http://www.cic.gc.ca/EnGLIsh/work/ap...o-nopermit.asp

Most of these categories are only valid if the work engaged is only days in length and that the worker is normally resident outside of Canada.

It doesn't seem from my experience that you could work until a positive decision is made on your work permit application.

As far as I'm aware you'll be implied visitor only status until a decision is made on your WP.
