How do the consent laws work?

So obviously, I'm not planning for going for anybody much younger, or much older than me, but this is something that there is a lot of confusion on. How exactly does this work?

I've heard a bunch of different explanations for this law, and I'm very confused. There are a bunch of different things I've heard:

  1. If you are 16 years old, it is illegal to engage in sexual activities with someone under 16.
  2. If you are 18 years old, it is illegal to engage in sexual activities with someone under 18
  3. If there is larger than a 5 year gap between the two people, and one is under 18, then it is illegal

I really don't understand. Again, this is only just so I can understand how it works. I live in Ontario, Canada.

1. If the consent age is 16 then both of u will have to be at least 16.
U cannot do it with anyone younger than the consent age.
2 and 3. There is so limit or age gap.

16 is the age of consent.
Exception for 14-15 year olds dating up to 5 years older
Exception for 12-13 year olds dating up to 2 years older

So I guess as long as you're within those rules you can have consensual sex with someone legally.
In Canadia.

it depends on your area... look up your local laws. in ny it's 17, illegal if you're over 21 and the other person is under 17, legal if the other person is under 15 and you're within 4 years of them, etc... generally though if you're not a creep no one is going to care like i was dating a 21 yo @ 16 and i mean my mom wasnt happy but no one really bats an eye, police were called on me before by a healthcare worker reporting it as "abuse" and the police were basically like....yeah we're not going to do anything about this lol.

1. depends on the age of consent. For the US it's illegal
2. Illegal, i'm pretty sure you shouldn't have a relationship with them either...
An exception is you were both under 18 when you started and if you turn 18 years old and they are still below 18, it's ok because of the Romeo and Juliet Clause (not a joke that's the name of it...)
3. age gap doesn't matter above age of consent.
