    There is no law in Canada against dating someone, hugging, or even kissing. The age of consent in Canada is set federally at 16 -- with two close-in age exceptions, five years for those 14 and 15 and two years for those 12 and 13. All assume either party is in a position of trust or authority (teacher, doctor, police officer, baby sitter, camp staff, etc.) when the age is a set 18. Age was raised from 14 to 16 the 2006 Tackling Violent Crime Act, passed 2008.

    That said there are other laws which could effect his -- child pornography, custodial interference, corruption of a minor, etc. and of course there are non-legal preperusions, such as your parents calling his boss, sending a letter to his land lord, calling his family, general social, religious, and family issues which you could face, etc.

    The difference is that 15 year olds are more easily taken advantage of than 18 year olds. They lack must of the experience and knowledge to make as informed decisions so society puts up laws. One of the primary proponents of raising the age was the police chiefs in major cities to fight child prostitution.

    And yes... most people would consider him a pervert. That falls under the social penalities for having relationships with minors. Most people would also consider that behaviour rather foolish and not taking into account the child's needs -- he isn't going to marry you, long term dating is out, he knows your parents will flip, etc., etc. so persuing such a relationship is generally stupid.

    It's not illegal but if you are sexual with each other then yes it is illegal. And no, it's not stupid for the rules to be different for an underage person. 18 is an adult. 15 is not. That's why 18 is legal and 15 is not. Also if a full grown man of that age would go for you, a child, yes he IS a pervert. Use common sense, please, girly.

    you can date to a degree the law is really regarding sexual activity of any nature you have to wait till your countriys legal age

    so as long as he does not have sex or do other sexual things with you he is not breaking the law

    and if her respects you he will know this and accept he has to wait maybe he is not wanting to do the secxual stuff anyway yet not all guys jump on every girl they date

    to cliiffhanger its not illegal or gross and he is nor necessarily a pervert

    you are assuming its sexual some men older will wait to the girl is legal age or even lkonger dont judge by your ways

    no laws are broken in most western countries unless he has sexual activity with her under age so if legal age is 16 she waits till then

    If you have sex with him it's rape. So say goodbye to him for 5-15 years

    and 27yro? really get a girl his own age... no need to hit on teenage girls
