    Are they both South African passports? – DJClayworth Mar 21 '17 at 19:43

Canada does not have a rule requiring that a passport be valid for any specific length of time, just valid for your stay. So passport one would in fact be sufficient.

However in most cases a passport is invalidated when a new one is issued to the same person by the same country. If this is the case with yours then you will need to have both passport 2 present (for validity) and passport 1 (for the visa).

This assumes that you mean both passports are South African.
