Poly events at Breathless Ottawa
I realize that if this community is ever going to take off, some people are going to have to post to it.

Therefore, for those who are interested, I discovered there are two poly events on the calendar of the Breathless club this month. (All events directly quoted from the Web site.)

February 10, 6pm - Potluck is the 2nd Sunday of every month and is open to non members. (ID required)Read more...Collapse )

February 14, 6:30 pm - Polyamory discussion group. Topic: This isn't what I signed up for! I wanted two boyfriends and ended up with a husband, a wife, 3 kids and a mortgage.

For more upcoming open poly events at Breathless, you can check out their list of events.

Has anyone been to any of these? Are they any fun? Perhaps a few of us should do the daring thing and actually try them out for ourselves.

Introduction : Kristina
My name is Kristina, and I am 24. I don't like labels but I will list a few that fit me somewhat: agnostic, animal lover (cats, dogs, generally furry creatures), art lover, carnivore, gamer, geek, introvert, kinky, lesbian, me, nature lover, pet owner (or, is it owned by pets), poly, single and switch. Looking for friendship, dating and if I come across the right person, or people long term relationship. Though my main pursuit right now is to meet new women, and build friendships. I own two cats, one of which is named Wire, so being comfortable around them is a must.

Getting polyspouses past Canadian immigration
That thought has been plaguing my mind for a long time, and especially now that I'm back from Scotland and my first meeting with theodur. The fact is that I love him and would love to have him come to Canada, a sentiment he shares.

There are a few ways we could get him to immigrate - he may qualify under the Skilled Worker Class Immigration, but if he passes it's borderline at best. The other option was to bring him in under the Family Class Immigration.

I got this idea because I heard that some people from Islamic nations practicing polygyny have gotten into the country with multiple wives, and I saw that they even seem to have a provision for sponsoring special significant others of this class called a Conjugal partners, which pretty much fits my relationship with theodur.

We figure we would have some sort of commitment ceremony to seal our relationship, and exchange tokens of some kind, and thus we would have at least something to submit as proof of our relationship.

Of course then they have these two lovely little stipulations at the bottom:

  • you or your sponsor were married to someone else at the time of your marriage;
  • you have lived apart from your sponsor for at least one year and either you or your sponsor are the common-law or conjugal partner of another person;

Bleah. But I have to keep reminding myself that it wasn't so long ago when people couldn't immigrate their same sex partners to Canada either. So maybe if enough people challenge immigration, the way will eventually open for poly people too.

Any thoughts on this?
