So you are assuming you will be married to a Canadian citizen. The process is called 'outland spousal sponsorship' and it is you and your Canadian wife that would have to apply and fill out all the forms etc. Start reading here and follow the links to obtain your package of forms and checklist etc.

Getting a TRV is likely to be quite difficult. Given that you are still married you can’t get remarried without getting divorced somewhere. You can apply for a conjugal application.

Marrying your Canadian girlfriend without legally ending your first marriage would be bigamy. That is illegal and the marriage will not be recognized by IRCC. If you have a TRV, you will have to come to Canada to live with her for one year to become common-law. She can then sponsor you. If you are not approved for a TRV, you can look at applying as conjugal.

Hello,
Thank you for the reply.
I want to apply for a TRV in Canada.I have a GF who (she is single) is a Canadian Citizen.

My questions are:

a. Do I need an invitation letter coming from my GF?
b. Do I need to purchase round trip ticket first before processing a TRV?

Getting a TRV will likely be very difficult. Getting an invitation letter will likely hurt your chances of getting a TRV but not having a reason to visit Canada also hurts your application.

Do not purchase a ticket until you get a TRV. Yes you should get a return ticket if approved.

My GF (single and a Canadian Citizen)and I will try for a conjugal sponsorship..and I have read in some forums that getting a TRV first (even denied) would be a good start.

If you are approved for a TRV, you don't qualify as conjugal because you can come to Canada and live together to become common-law. You must be refused a TRV in order for a conjugal app to be considered.
