Dating age restrictions canada

This law states that a relationship cannot turn sexually until both is of legal age (age of consent).

If a person is an adult and have sex with someone under the age of consent, that person of age could go to jail. Sexual contact can be considered Statutory Rape or Sexual Misconduct depending upon the state's laws. A person of any age can DATE someone older or younger that him/her without legal consequences. There is no law that states an age limit for you to date someone older.
