I'm going to be 17 soon, and have been living with my father for the past few months, after moving out from my Mom's house. I am wanting to move to Winnipeg this summer, as my friend is renting an apartment and is in need of a responsible roomate who will be guarenteed to pay a share of the rent, every month. I've mentioned this to my father, but he has his mind set that I will not be leaving his home until I turn 18. I've told him that I plan on finishing my grade 12 year in Winnipeg, getting a job, and sharing an apartment, however this has not changed his mind. Though there is no abuse in his home whatsoever, due to past experiences, I have not been very respectful towards my parents and their concern for my safety, in the past. I'd like to be able to have permission to move out, so that I can continue my schooling and get into university or college, in the future. However, no matter what I say or do, my father will not give me the consent I need to move out of his house. I've been loking for any options I have that would allow me to move in with my roomate, without needing any parental consent. Is there any way this would be possible for me? I've tried researching Manitoba Emancipation, but have found nothing. Running away is never the answer, so I'd like to figure out what my other options are at the moment. Ideally, I'd like to be able to leave without being forced to return, this summer- so that I have time to register myself in school. Please get back to me, it is very important that I figure this out before summer, as my friend is getting her apartment at the beginning of August. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
