    Canada does allow and accept dual citizenship. However just marrying a Canadian citizen provides you with no automatic rights to "just stay in the country". Nor does it mean you can get Canadian citizenship just because you married a Canadian citizen.

    You would have to apply for a spousal visa, and meet the residency requirements BEFORE you would be eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship.

    To stay with her in Canada...you guys will need to either apply for a fiance visa (if you are not married) or a spousal visa if you are married.

    I don't think Canada allows dual citizenship, you can either be Canadian or not. I think this is the case but I would double check.
