I have a 16 year old friend ( *Jane* ) who wants to be an emancipated minor in Ontario.
Jane is clinically depressed and as of this writing, waiting for her therapy to start. She is living with uncaring parents and an emotionally abusive mother.
She is trying to get away from her parents but being a minor prevents her from doing so. What is the law in Ontario regarding minor emancipation? Would she require her parents' permission to be emancipated? Would she be reported as a runaway if she leaves home without telling anyone?... Google didn't turn up any helpful results.
