How long is Child Support paid?

Child support is typically payable until the age of majority, which is 19 years of age in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Support is normally paid beyond this age if the children continue to be dependent on the parents; reasons for dependency might include that the child is attending post-secondary school (university or college) or that the child is physically or mentally disabled.

When I think age of majority, I think vote/kill/sex:

1) Can run for office and vote in elections
2) Can serve in the army
3) Can consent to sexual activity (eg. sex clubs, porn)

Are 18 year olds not allowed to do these things in NL?

To be honest, I would also think that the purchase of alcohol would be another right you obtain at the age of majority, but that seems to be all over the map, so I'm not sure if that is a good indicator of anything.

So did I until I found that on the NL govt website. It does seem odd IMO to have it at 19 when most of the country has it at 18.
