Question: Can you date someone under 18 Canada?

There is nothing that prohibits someone in Canada from “dating” a minor, sixteen years of age and younger, so long as the date does not involve sexual activity. All sexual activity without consent, regardless of age, is a criminal offence.

In Canada that age is 16 years old. This means that as long as someone is 16 years old and the sexual activity is consensual, there is no criminal liability. Sexual contact with anyone under this age may be criminal, subject to a few exceptions.
