Moving out @ 16/17

How would you go about moving out in Canada, (Ontario).  
 I'm almost 17yrs old and I really dislike living with my mother right now and I just want to be out! I've been doing the research since I was 15yrs old and I've been talking to my social worker about this for the last 4 months now.  
 I just want real stories of people's experiences or experiences of a friend/family member so I can grasp the idea of leaving this depressing place that is my home.
