Traveling outside Canada while on implied status

Hi guys,
I'm on implied status now as my PR application under CEC (inland) has been in process for more than 8 months and I have applied a BOWP for more than 2 months. I am still waiting for the results.

I plan to travel to the US in January but due to my implied status, I cannot work anymore after I return to Canada, following this source: https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=190&top=17

Anyone here has traveled outside Canada while on implied status? If yes, any problem when you return to Canada? I would like to hear your real experience. If it's not okay for me to travel to the US at this moment, I'm willing to cancel or delay my trip until I can get my BOWP or PR decision.

Thanks in advance.
