14-the age of consent law in canada applies to all forms of sexual activity, ranging from sexual touching, such as kissing, to sexual intercourse. the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity involves exploitative activity, such as prostitution, pornography or where there is a relationship of trust, authority, or dependency. for other sexual activity, the age of consent is 14 years. the criminal code provides what is often referred to as a close in age or peer group exception: a 12 or 13 year old can consent to engage in sexual activity with another person who is less than two years older, and with whom there is no relationship of trust, authority, or dependency.
