Zapatista has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'd say start sparring as soon as your coach/teacher will allow you to. While you're most likely too young to compete (I don't know the rules in Canada), you can still get some experience by sparring with people you train with.

As for kickboxing, I'd say one of the ideal arts is Muay Thai, but if you're doing Western Kickboxin, I wouldn't imagine it would be too hard to learn knees, elbows and some of the Muay Thai clinch on your own.
