I'm 16 and I really need a new phone and plan. I couldn't find anything online so far.

You have to be Age of majority (18 or 19 depends on your province) to sign a contract.
If you have a phone now, you can get a prepaid plan to start of your own.

Maybe try talking to your parents about the need?  I'm assuming they're paying for your current plan.
