Generally speaking, age restrictions on emergency contraception vary by province. In many provinces, there are no age restrictions, so young people and teenagers are legally allowed to purchased emergency contraceptive pills without a prescription or parental consent. However, there are some age restrictions when purchasing EC. As reported by the International Consortium for Emergency Contraception, "In May 2008, the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) recommended full OTC access for the LNG regimen with no age restriction. This recommendation is being applied Under Common Law; however, pharmacists have the discretion to restrict sale of EC if a woman does not appear mature. All provinces follow Common Law with the exception of Quebec, which follows Civil Code, and Saskatchewan."<ref>[http://www.cecinfo.org/country-by-country-information/status-availability-database/countries/canada/ EC Status and Availability: Canada]</ref>

En général, les restrictions d'âge varient en fonction des provinces. Dans la plupart des provinces, il n'y a pas de restrictions d'âge, les adolescentes sont légalement autorisées à se procurer une contraception sans prescription ou consentement parental. Ainsi que le rapporte le Consortium sur la Contraception d'Urgence, "En mai 2008, l'Association Nationale des Autorités de Régulation Pharmaceutique (NAPRA) ont recommandé l'accès total sans aucune restriction d'âge. Cette recommandation est appliquée selon la Common Law; cependant, les pharmaciens peuvent restreindre l'accès à la contraception d'urgence à leur discrétion si une femme ne leur paraît pas assez mature. Toutes les provinces suivent la Common Law sauf le Québec, qui suit le Code Civil, et le Saskatchewan."ref>[http://www.cecinfo.org/country-by-country-information/status-availability-database/countries/canada/ EC Status and Availability: Canada]</ref>
