Can I move out at 15? I want to leave and move in with my friend and have their parents be my legal guardians.

Thanks for contacting us! Moving out can be a tough process, and being under 18 can also complicate things. Since we aren’t legal experts, I’d suggest having a look at the Alberta Child Youth and Family Enhancement Act. Have a chat with your friends’ parents and ask them to help you out with that legal aspect as it can be tricky to navigate on your own. One resource that can get you connected with legal support is 211, where they have access to a directory of legal resources and possibly ideas on who to contact about this.
