Question: What is the age limit for dating in Canada?

The age of consent in Canada is 16 years. This is the age that criminal law recognizes the legal capacity of a young person to consent to sexual activity. Generally, it is legal to have sexual contact with someone who is 16 years or older if they agree to have sex with you.

What age can you date someone over 18 in Canada?

16 years old The legal age of consent in Canada is 16 years old. Exceptions: Persons under 16 years can have consensual sex with someone close in age. These exceptions only apply if the older person is not in a position of authority or trust and there is no exploitation or dependency.

Can a 22 year old date a 15 yr old?

If dating includes sex (or any form of sexual activity) then the answer is yes - and parental approval is irrelevant. If you are under 16 then you may not lawfully engage in any sexual activity (not just intercourse) with anyone.
