Your friend needs a Lawyer and probably some counseling.

Whether or not he can, he shouldn’t.

No. Just because the marriage hasn’t been formally filed with the Canadian government doesn’t mean that it’s not valid in Canada. 

He needs to divorce Canadian girl 1 before he can marry Canadian girl 2.

@mchitt329:  

I’m betting his friend is the one with the too horny gf. 😉

No, sorry, he needs to suck it up and get a divorce in Algeria. If they find out that he is already legally married (you’re still married, even if it’s not registered in another country), he can get into serious trouble legally, and it will make his second marriage invalid.

If he has been married in the past, he will need to prove that he’s been divorced– Canada recognizes international marriages.

This explains the law pretty clearly.  Page 4:

· If you marry someone who is already married to another person, this is called  olygamy. It is against the law in Canada. Your marriage will not be legally valid,
even if you did not know that your spouse was already married.

· If you have been married in the past, you must prove that you are divorced from your first spouse. If you were divorced outside Canada, you will need to prove that your divorce was legal in that country. If your spouse’s foreign divorce is not  recognized in Canada, he will not be legally eligible to marry you. It does not
matter if you or your spouse believed in good faith that he was divorced and able to remarry – if his foreign divorce is not recognized in Canada, he can not legally marry again because Canadian law does not allow a person to have more than one
spouse.

@muhib_allah:  I don’t live in Canada, but I assume he can’t.
