  • I believe different provinces have different rules for it

    But, I'm telling you, he's 22, and you're 16. He's A PREDATOR. THIS SHOULD SET OFF RED FLAGS TO YOU

    AND WHERE ARE YOUR PARENTS IN ALL OF THIS?

    • I dont usually hangout with people my own age anyways like he thought I was older and I thought he was younger. I would consider myself pretty mature though for a 16 year old and I know the signs of a red flag and he hasn't shown a single one

    • Show All
    • Ya my parents know

    • Which means they should go to jail

  • Quick google searching got me this.. "The Tackling Violent Crime Act raises the legal age of sexual consent in Canada to 16 from 14, the first time it has been raised since 1892. But the law includes a 'close-in-age exception,' meaning 14- and 15-year-olds can have sex with someone who is less than five years older." To answer your question, yes.. but I advise that you're aware of this guy's intentions before you do anything.

    • Well I looked it up and what I found in Canada’s laws rape isn’t used, instead they use sexual harassment in witch it says that someone causes harm in a sexual manor to someone else

    • I know lol but is it legal for me to be with him?

    • Yes it’s legal as long as your boyfriend isn’t a coach, spiritual leader, teacher, principal orguidance counselor. Or if he has anything to do with prostitution or porn.

  • Well technically where you are does matter but even if you're in a state where 16 is age of consent your parents can still press charges on your boyfriend.

  • I don't know Canadian's laws, but in the US, on the FEDERAL level, it is Statutory rape (the federal age of consent is 18), but on the STATE level, it depends on the state. But since you are in Canada, this info is irrelevant...

  • If parents find out they can have him sent to jail. If no one finds out then you too are good to have sex.

  • Depends on the country's laws. Some country's consent is as low as 14.
    I would not do it anyway.

  • At 22 he should know better than to date a 16 year old in the first place. If he really loves you he will wait till your older not now.
