My friend is Canadian permanent resident and so is his wife and 2 sons. After they did the landing in Canada my friend got married to another wife when he was working in India and adopted her daughter. He is a Muslim and his religion allows a 2nd marriage.
This happened a few months back and without the knowledge of his 1st wife. Both his 2nd wife and his daughter are Indian Citizens and want to visit Canada for tourism purpose. Going through the application to check if they are eligible for such a visa there was a question "Do you have a Family member who is a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident and is 18 years or older?" and then some other questions somehow related to the same matter.
In this case should the answer be YES (which means a husband for the 2nd wife and a father for the daughter)?
Will his 2nd wife and his daughter be eligible for getting a tourist visa and visit Canada?
Or as they have a family member who is a permanent resident (husband to the 2nd wife and father of the daughter) will this negatively impact their visa application and/or issuance?
As they are coming for a tourist visit and not to live in Canada will they still be affected by saying the truth?
Will answering YES in their application to the Visa create a problem for my friend and/or effect his current permanent resident status?
