Canada is not at will, you need a legitimate reason to fire someone as long as they are past the training/trial period which is usually about 3 months. The employer could say he fired the OP for another reason, however, even if he does claim this, it can still be called into question and brought to court because with the affair, he had bias and a possible ulterior motive for the firing.
Wrongful termination you will get unemployment for that. They can fire at will in most state, but they still gotta pay if they give you no good reason.
Private stuff is not enough to fire someone (you didn't do anything wrong in your job as far as we know)
Definitely lay the biggest lawsuit on your bosses company you can! He will be fired once the facts come to light. As a criminal justice/law major you have full right to sue. I bet you even have messages from her proving why he fired you. And if he came right out and told you that's why you are golden. Plus you'll be pretty rich by the time it over
