You are legally recognized as married in Canada once you become a Canadian citizen. If you're wife is not of your faith (is Protestant, Catholic, etc.) then you can actually have another wedding in Canada, but it has nothing to do with recognizing your marriage. To others here you are married. However, although one may not want to even think of such a thing in the future if divorce should come up then this could cause some problems. It's best to speak to a minister or priest for more information.
