The legal age of consent for sexual activity is 16.
However, a person who is 12 or 13 years old can consent to sexual activity if their partner is less than two years older, which is 13 or 14 years old. A person who is 14 or 15 years old can consent to sexual activity as long as their partner is less than five years older, which is 18 or 19 years old.
In all cases, sexual consent is not valid if there is voluntary or involuntary intoxication by drugs, alcohol, medication that affects decision-making and/or functional capacities, if there is the presence of threats or violence, or if there is a situation of authority, dependence, exploitation or abuse of trust. The three criteria for consent are that it must be informed, given freely and with enthusiasm.
