Labour laws, including minimum working ages, are set by the individual provinces. Most start at either 14 or 15 for general jobs. However, those typically up to 16 work under restricted conditions -- including supervision, hours, etc. Most companies don't like hiring those under 16 (or even 18) for this reason as it makes juggling schedules difficult, may cause insurance issues, and they don't want the liability if something goes wrong.
