Canadian passport holder in DXB in transit 8 hours

As a Canadian passport holder I realize that I require a visa to visit Dubai. However, if I am soley in transit in DXB in Terminal 3 (flying Emirates on all legs) and intend on waiting in the lounges is it still necessary to apply for a visa? Will the Emirates counter staff in the USA understand and accept what my intentions are as I intend not to go through immigration/customs between my flights? I have done this in other airports around the world but they were not in countries which required a visa. Anyone have this experience in DXB? thanks in advance
