Will the Canon Extenders work on a Non-L lens? Thank you.

No... just L lenses!

And not all L lenses, only the 135mm f/2 and longer and I am not sure that they will work on the 70-300mm L IS. It isn't in the compatibility chart on one site that I looked at.

You may be able to use a third party 1.4x teleconverter like those made by Kenco but you will almost certainly have no AF or extremely slow AF on your camera.

Save up for a longer lens instead.

true,  use the extenders / teleconverters on the better, longer lens
