I'm an escort in Canada and would like to know if prostitution

is legal in Canada. I know that soliciting in a private place,

employing prostitutes , and doing incalls (keeping a common body house)is not legal-they busted people doing incalls before & agencies-, but what about things like discussing sex for money over the phone, internet etc? I'm really concerned about that and people who hire me seem to expect me to be explicit! I'm worried I'm being forced to be explicit else no biz!!!

What about Montreal and Toronto, has there been any busts there

for independent escorts merely going to say a hotel? I know about occasional busts at Remington's.

I'm more concerned with potential for problems just doing

outcalls, not soliciting and working independently.

Also, I realize the laws are different in the Canada than the U.S.A and possbibly different from province to province in Canada.

Can anyone with some degree of knowledge and authority give a

clear direct response please? I don't want a criminal record, just for having a bit of fun and giving innocent pleasure.

Use the Board's search feature to do a search for posts by Matt from Vancouver. (He's an escort from BC.) Include archived posts in your search. There's at least one post where he discusses the laws in Canada (at least as they apply to BC). Obviously, he's not a lawyer, but his thoughts can give you some idea of the risks that you're taking. Good luck and enjoy!

As Justice pointed out, I am not a lawyer, I just play one in bed,(debriefing clients, oral litigation...) the easiest way to find out about the laws regarding prostitution in your area, is to contact the police dept.

In Canada, most provinces, if not all, have a system of licencing escorts, and along with the license comes a book of bylaws. They aren't always in laypersons terminology, but they will give you the specifics of what is 'legal prostitution' and what is not.

I do not know if it would hold up in court, but simply ask a client up front if they are a police officer or a member of any police force or justice system in Canada. This is an old trick that street hustlers used to ask when getting into your car and it might work on the phone or on the internet. Afterall, if they say NO, then you have a record that they misrepresented themselves.

 

However, this may all be unnecessary as I do not know of any attempt to bust escorts via ads. Street walkers is what the police are after the most, and this scene has all but disappeared in most Canadian cities, and did so long ago in the US but mostly because of the violence on the US streets. Some Canadian city streets were very busy until just 2 or 3 years ago, such as Halifax, Saint John, Fredericton, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, etc. All are dead now, to my knowledge. Vancouver is still busy, but most of the guys are druggies.

 

If you hear any problems, let us know. We are all in this boat together, Danny.

As far as I know, the law in Canada, is that you cannot communicate in a public place, a monetary exchange for sexual favours. That is how they bust street workers.

Another clause is, an escort cannot engage in sexual activities in exchange for monetary gains, at thier home. This is to prevent brothels.

I beleive most provinces in Canada have a legitimate license you can obtain, for a fee, and after a plice clearance and background check are completed. This is to protect the clients from the seedier types.

It's not the most effective system, but it's a start in the right direction to potentially legalizing what can be an honourable proffesion.

Check your local laws, there may be loopholes even in the US.

I definitely agree that asking a potential officer if he

is a cop is not a good way to prevent any problems. I

believe the best way to prevent any problems is to not do

in calls, not get involved with an agency, and not talk about

sex for money at all. But the problem is clients, and rightfully

so b/c it is no fun to waste money on a dud, seem to demand that

escorts explicity describe what they will do for a fee. Most can

seem to understand subtle talk, but some can't and will even say

thank you very much I will deal with someone else. from Danny
