You can use annotation plugin and in particular Box annotations.

Here below there is an example with Scatter chart:

var randomScalingFactor = function() {
  return (Math.random() > 0.5 ? 1.0 : -1.0) * Math.round(Math.random() * 100);
};
var randomColor = function(opacity) {
  return 'rgba(' + Math.round(Math.random() * 255) + ',' + Math.round(Math.random() * 255) + ',' + Math.round(Math.random() * 255) + ',' + (opacity || '.3') + ')';
};
var data = {
  datasets: [{
    label: "My First dataset",
    data: [{
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }]
  }, {
    label: "My Second dataset",
    data: [{
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }, {
      x: randomScalingFactor(),
      y: randomScalingFactor(),
    }]
  }]
};
data.datasets.forEach(function(dataset) {
  dataset.borderColor = randomColor(0.4);
  dataset.backgroundColor = randomColor(0.1);
  dataset.pointBorderColor = randomColor(0.7);
  dataset.pointBackgroundColor = randomColor(0.5);
  dataset.pointBorderWidth = 1;
});
