The law sets a minimum age of 19 to use, buy, possess, and consume alcohol in Ontario. Even though alcohol is legal for adults 19 years of age and older, it is prohibited in schools, on school property, and at school-related activities.
It is prohibited to attend school while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. For more information or clarification, please refer to your specific school board’s and/or school’s policy.
