There are no legal ages for staying Home Alone in Ontario.
While there is no defined age, in Ontario, Children’s Aid Societies recommend that children under 10 not be left home alone. This is a guideline not all ten-year-olds are sufficiently responsible and mature to stay on their own even in a safe and well stocked environment. This is a judgment call left for parents as they know their child’s abilities best. It is important for children to be trained with beneficial safety information that will help them make wise decisions, prevent injuries and deal with an emergency or an unexpected situation if needed.
