What are the legal guidelines around prostitution in Ontario currently?

The legal guidelines in Ontario are the same as they are in every other province across Canada, as the Criminal Code of Canada which governs the nation deals with the subjectmatter.

Communicating to purchase sex, in any circumstances, is now illegal under s.286.1 of the Criminal Code.

Obtaining sexual services for consideration

  • 286.1 (1) Everyone who, in any place, obtains for consideration, or communicates with anyone for the purpose of obtaining for consideration, the sexual services of a person is guilty of [the offence]
