    It is frowned upon until the child is 13... but there is no law. Dept of chilren and family sevices can investgate with any report of child left allone untill your kid is 18.
    Yes
    There is no legal age. However if for example you left a teenager, presume you would not leave a younger child, and there was a fire for example and the child perished you would likely be held culpable.
    In Canada it is illegal to leave your child alone if he/she is under the age of 12
