You could apply but will need to provide information on your spouse and child. Will you be able to get all that information or she would be hostile ? I would strongly recommend that you engage a lawyer for this purpose because it would involve taking custody of your child and being legally separated from your wife.

Might be worthwhile to give reconciliation a chance and see how things work out. Also bear in mind that your wife and son are Canadian citizens, the courts will very carefully determine who gets custody and you will have to have a very strong reason to convince them that his interests are best served in your custody. It will not be as simple as landing in Canada and taking your son with you from her.

If you choose this route, be prepared for time and money consuming legal affairs which will be a big drain on you financial resources.

Good luck.

for those who are planning to land in canada this winter, particularly in alberta, I was advised to better land during fall or right after winter, just to adjust selves to the weather....we were there last 1st week of may of this year, it is the start of spring and yet the temperature is still around 1 deg. celcius...we suffered from colds, cough, running nose, etc...and now we just return back to dubai..and we are experiencing the complete opposite....another concern duting winter is the difficulty in public transportation, unless u can secure a driving license immediately....bus and taxis are numbered, how much more during winter......really winter is a challenge...another thing is we find it hard to djust in our sleeping hours....at 11PM the sun is still shining bright.....it was hard for children....but it was a challenge....we'll be back for good on March 2015...before the winter ends just 2 witness the snow......
