Does anybody know how old you have to be to move out legally in Canada? I keep hearing it's 16, but never from any offical sources. If you move out
at 16, do your parents have to sign something?
Also, what things would you have to take care of before leaving to move? (i.e. address change, etc.)
Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure this info will be useful to others as well. Thanks.

When was your age as far as l know the age is 16.
I moved out at that time but I was also moving in with 4 other people.
I didn't sign the lease I just had to pay the guy who was the head cheese in that department.
But when I was 17 I got my own place and they just wanted to know what I was doing for work, I signed a lease contract, and moved in.
You don't have to take care of anything when you move.
If you are renting which I think you are, you don't have as much paper work as one would when they are buying a house.
Change your address once you move in. You will have the proof to show whatever bureau you go to change that sort of thing.
Many people don't really take 16 yr olds seriously. Most of the time 16 yr olds move out before their year contract is up.
I moved from Niagara to London when I was 16, but again I didn't have to deal with the renter, just the guy I was living with.
Oh yes, and don't make the mistake of buying wants over needs.
You'll either run out of rent money, not eat for a while, or some other problem.
And save save save! This is a big step, common people make the mistake of spending their money and thinking they will get it back before the end of
Sometimes it just doesn't happen. You always want to stay on top of things, because once you fall down, you tend to keep falling down like a drunk
ass on a bike.
Those were my mistakes.
wow: Don't spend fast, make it last. You'll be happy you did it.
