Yes, a teenager has the right to withdraw from their parent's support and control, at age sixteen. If the child withdraws, they no longer have any legal claim to support from their parents except in special situations. These include being forced to leave home, or where abuse has resulted in the child leaving home.

Under the circumstances of abuse or being "kicked out", a person may be entitled to support from their parents, to the best of the parent's ability to pay. They may also be entitled to support from Ontario Works, in special circumstances.

The full details are in the Children's Law Reform Act, Ontario Family Law Act, and the Child and Family Services Act.
