I have never been presented with this dilemma before. I usually facilitate skilled worker or student visa's, but have been approached by the father of one of my past students to facilitate an investor visa, which I initially agreed to. However I was later presented with the dilemma that he has 4 wives under Islamic law. I told him Polygamy is considered bigamy in Canada & is NOT recognized & is even considered illegal, & that only one wife will be considered a spouse. Although many people practice it openly in Canada but the extra spouses are not recognized as spouses, but life goes on. However if he has the money to care of them all & can make sure they will not be a burden on the government, then it should be straight forward, right? The question is, HOW? To register their application: Either as dependents (but under which sub-clause, I don't think one exists) Or as partners in the new to be branch in Canada of his registered multinational company that is registered in Dubai- UAE (Which they all in fact are). I don't know how to initially go about this one. He doesn't trust immigration lawyers as he was scammed by one in the past & say most of the rest over charge. I know this is a culturally sensitive controversial topic, but just seeing if I can receive any helpful info to proceed with his investor visa. Thanks in advance.
