How old do you have to be to live on your own without parents in Ontario Canada?

I believe that when you are sixteen in Ontario you can leave and even if your parents want you to come back the police cannot make you. Keep in mind that at sixteen you are still a minor and your parents are still legally responsible for you (i.e. if you break into a store, damage someone's property...etc.) you are "legal" when you are 18 for sure. And can move out then with or without your parents consent.
