Default Work permit renewal - include Canadian spouse?

(Also posted to thetravelforum.com)

I'm completing a work permit extension (current WP expires at the end of June), and have been advised not to include my Canadian spouse in section B of the form. I have been told by an immigration lawyer that this section is only for details of non-Canadian nationals (although that is mentioned nowhere in the instructions or on the form) and to include her will only cause confusion.

I have indicated in section A that I have a Canadian spouse, so am a little concerned that not including her details here will lead to questions and delay the extension. Can anyone confirm that the advice I have received is correct?

Thanks.

Can't help on the specific question, but out of interest why are you on a work permit and not a spousal visa? Or have you a spouse visa application in process?

The PR application is in the queue in Vegreville - unfortunately my WP expires first.
