What is the age of majority in BC? How old does someone have to be to form a valid contract?

In British Columbia, contracts made with a minor are unenforceable except in limited exceptions. When a person reaches the Age of Majority, they are no longer considered to be a minor. In British Columbia, the Age of Majority is 19. In other parts of Canada it is 18 or 19. In some parts of the United States of American, it can be as high as 21.
