Sexual Assault According to the Nature of the Acts Committed

There are different forms of sexual assault depending on the actions involved, and you must understand these differences in a legal context. Here is a breakdown of the various types of sexual assault based on the actions taken.
  • Non-Consensual Sexual Contact:  This form of sexual assault involves any form of touching, fondling, or groping of intimate body parts without consent. Even simple actions like unwanted kissing or touching can fall into this category.
  • Non-Consensual Digital or Object Penetration: Sexual assault can also involve non-consensual penetration of a person’s body, including rape. This is a severe form of sexual assault that involves acts such as forced intercourse, whether vaginal, anal, or oral.
  • Non-Consensual Exhibitionism: Some forms of sexual assault involve exposing one’s intimate body parts without consent. This can include flashing or indecent exposure in a public place.
  • Non-Consensual Voyeurism: This occurs when an individual secretly watches, records, or photographs another person in intimate situations without their consent.
  • Non-Consensual Sharing of Intimate Content: Sharing private pictures or videos of someone without their consent is wrong. This behavior is often referred to as “revenge porn” and is a form of sexual assault.

However, legal definitions and consequences of these acts can vary by jurisdiction. Laws surrounding sexual assault are in place to protect individuals from non-consensual sexual acts, and the severity of charges and penalties often depends on the specific nature of the offense. Get in touch with our sexual assault lawyers for details.

When Will There Be a Lack of Consent for Sexual Activity?

Lack of consent for sexual activity is the determining factor for whether sexual activity should be considered a crime. Here is some information about consent, the age of consent for sexual activity, and other types of sexual offenses:

Lack of Consent for Sexual Activity:

In Canada, consent determines whether sexual activity was coercive or not. There are several factors that invalidate consent, including:
  • When the individual is intoxicated, unconscious, cognitively impaired or asleep and does not fully comprehend the situation.
  • When an abuse of power or trust between the parties involved exists.
  • Instances where the victim gives consent under duress, fear, or threats.
  • Instances where the victim is a minor, even if they have said yes. The rules about how old you must be can change depending on your jurisdiction.

Age of Consent for Sexual Activity in Canada

In Canada, the legal age to consent for sex is 16 years old. However, there are some specific rules to consider:
  • If the age gap is within five years, a 14 or 15-year-old can agree to someone up to five years older.
  • If you’re 12 or 13, you can consent to someone who’s less than two years older.
  • If the older person is in a position of authority over the younger one, both parties must be 18 or older.

Other Types of Sexual Offences

Canada has regulations to address various types of sexual misconduct, such as:
  • Sexual Assault – Any non-consensual sexual touching, fondling, or penetration, that covers a broad spectrum of non-consensual sexual acts.
  • Child Pornography – Creation, distribution, or possession of explicit images of minors is considered a sexual offense.
  • Voyeurism – Secretly watching or recording someone without their consent in situations where privacy is expected results in voyeurism charges.
  • Sexual Exploitation – Exploiting a person under 18 for sexual purposes results in criminal charges.

If you have questions about consent, the age of consent, or sexual offenses in Canada, it’s crucial to consult with experienced sexual assault lawyers who can provide guidance and legal advice per your situation.
