Can you marry a Canadian citizen who lives in the U.S. at the Canadian embassy and how fast can you obtain the permanent resident visa to Canada?

I do not know if you can marry someone at the Canadian embassy. I doubt it. Why would you want to? Why would you need to? A marriage that is legally performed anywhere in the United States is considered a legal marriage by the Canadian government and courts. Therefore, there is no reason to marry at the embassy. For information on how you get permanent resident status, you should consult the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada: www.cic.gc.ca/english/ Unless of course if you are gay and lesbian and live somewhere in the US other than Massachusetts....
