Is my 7 year old non-canadian resident daughter an eligible dependent?

I am a Canadian citizen that got married last year on May 5, 2017. Me and my wife have a 7 year old daughter who was born on March 10, 2011. I am currently filling out the dependent form, and there is this box that says "Eligible Dependent (Equivalent to spouse)", should I put "Yes" or "No"?

You are not eligible to claim the amount for an eligible dependant.  You can only claim this if you do not have a spouse or common-law partner since you are married, it disqualifies for you this claim.
