Child luring, formally known as “luring a child,” is an offence under the Criminal Code of Canada (the “Code”) that encompasses communication via the internet with a person that you know is under the age of 18 years to commit a number of sexual offences including sexual exploitation, child pornography and incest. You will also be found guilty of child luring if you communicate with someone you know is under 16 years of age to commit sexual offences such as sexual interference, indecent exposure, sexual assault and kidnapping. If convicted, you will face up to 14 years imprisonment, be required to provide a DNA sample to the national data bank, and you will have to register as a sex offender.
