Question: Can a 22 year old date a 17 year old in Canada?

You can be charged with a sexual offence for sexual activity with a minor under 16 years of age. 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.

Can a 17 year old and 22 year old date?

A: Its legal for anyone to date anyone else. The law is not concerned with dating, but is concerned with sex. It is technically legal for a 22 year old to have a sexual relationship with a 17 year old; however, it still not a good idea. First, a 17 year old is still a minor.

Can a 22 year old date a 18 year old in Canada?

With the recent change to the criminal code of Canada, the age of consent for nonexploitative sexual activity is now 16 years. For exploitative sexual activity (prostitution or pornography, or where there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency), the age of consent is 18 years.
