Because you are a resident of Canada you would apply for the divorce in your own province.
There are two ways to apply.
First, you can apply on your own and have your former spouse served with the divorce application which he can ignore. You would then note him in default with the courthouse and shortly after that your divorce judgement would be signed.
The other way to apply would be to apply jointly where your former spouse would sign the application along with you and you would then file this documentation with the court.
In neither case would you attend before a judge. Rather, this would be done "over the counter", which means that a clerk at the courthouse office would take your file to a judge to sign the divorce judgement. This would take several weeks in total.
