Question #3: You have a question in one of the exam simulations about proxy marriages. Are these recognized?
Answer: Yes. This is covered by CIC’s processing manual OP2:
At a proxy marriage one of the participants is not present and has named a proxy to represent him or her. If the law of the country in which the marriage ceremony was performed permits proxy marriages, they are legal marriages for immigration purposes, provided they are legal under Canadian federal
law. See definition of “marriage” above and also Section 5.27 above.”
