You can get married where ever you like.

There are no residency requirements in terms of getting married in Canada and so you and your boyfriend would just apply for a marriage licence in the city you want to get married in and it would just take a few days to get processed.

The only delay would be if you were divorced before. Then you would need to get a legal opinion from a family lawyer that states that the divorce was valid so that you could get the licence. That letter could be done in a day by a family lawyer.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.
