Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

I am sorry to hear this.

If this marriage is considered to be valid in Mexico then it is valid in Canada. Frankly, that is a good thing because it is by far faster and cheaper to get a divorce than to get an annulment.

You can get a divorce after a one year separation without a trial. To get an annulment you need to go to court and will need to retain a lawyer.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
