    Default Emancipation in Canada

    I have never been able to find a clear statute or legal authority setting forth emancipation law in Canada or any of its provinces. The conventional wisdom is that in Canada you can set up an independent household at the age of 16 even if your parents object, but I haven't found any legal authority for that position.
