Polyamory in Toronto
 
Hey, we're just curious what people's experience has been in polyamory who live anywhere near Toronto. We're curious to find other like-minded individuals who are into the idea of practicing long term, respectful relationships. We just want to share thoughts and gain a local perspective. :)

Hey, We are moving to BUffalo NY this month! :) We have some open minded friends in Toronto. There are a few people that are poly in the area, but I don't know of any specific groups...yet.

I thought I read about some meetups in Toronto. I was pretty close for them. There are a couple you can find on meetup dot com too. I hope it helps!

Is it actually possible to post events on the calendar for polysocials or something??

Right you are. The Toronto Polyamory group on meetup.com is definitely not the first; there's been one running for 20 years. However, the meetup one has become rather large in a very short period of time; probably because it's only meetup.com. Seriously, put in polyamory meetups in Toronto from meetup.com is one of the first links to come up. I've been to its meetings since the second meetup and it's only gotten better; the main meetup is usually full now days after its announced (only 20 people can go), but many side meetups are being made and there's still lots of room in those. Here's the link to the group:
http://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Polyam...-Social-Group/

Polyamory meetups have actually been brought up in this very forum in the past:
http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2647

I'm not such a fan of that particular group (which happens the first Monday of every month) as it seems that the subject usually isn't about people's lives but about trivia, but some people clearly like it.

There is one other regular poly meetup that's open to anyone who's interested in polyamory that I'm aware of; the Ethical Lovers Group, or ELG for short. They meet up on the second Wednesday of every Month at the UFT's woman campus near Spadina and College, starting at 7:30pm. I really liked going to it, but since I now live about 2 hours drive from Toronto and it ends at 10pm, I've decided not to go for now. However, if interested, mail me and I'll give the email address of the organizer and he'll send you a reminder a day or 2 before it's going to happen.

Information about both this meetup as well as the first Monday of the month night one are also available in the meetup.com forum.

I would like more information about the ethical lovers group.

Maybe we should plan a small meetup here in this thread? I'm also new to being poly. I've looked around and haven't found anything... The Meetup.com site is full. Anyone up for that?

thinker777 09-02-2012 10:17 AM

You can find an event on Monday here:

As I mentioned to tinker, there are actually 2 rather large meetup groups in Toronto that support polyamory; one in its title itself and another more casually. Here they are:
http://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Polyamory-Culture-Club/

http://www.meetup.com/Satisfactorily-Single/

I also highly recommend the Ethical Lovers group, especially if you enjoy hearing the issues that poly people have; the style is round table; everyone gets a minute or 2 to say what's going on in their life at first and then the discussion flows from there. I think I should mention, however, the one of the organizers of the group told me it was rather full the last time I saw him, and I'm lost the contact info as well. However, I think that if you get on the discussion mailing list on the following link, they'll know about it:
http://www.torontopoly.ca/index.php?...d=42&Itemid=30

I think I should say that I no longer go to the the Toronto Polyamory Culture Club (it's a bit of a story), have never been to Satisfactorily Single (though I know the organizer) (the meetups are generally too late given where I'm living now) and have also stopped going to the Ethical Lovers Group (again, the meetups are too late). There is also another one called the Monday Social which meets on the first Monday of every month (and perhaps more Mondays, but that's the main one I believe), but again don't have the contact info on me; it's another night one, which doesn't fit with my current location.
