Canada's Capital Furry Convention
Since 2016, CanFURence has been bringing people from all over the world together in Ottawa to celebrate the furry fandom in all of its creativity, diversity, and fun! Whether you are a fan of cartoon animals, cinematic creatures, or mascot characters, CanFURence caters to fans of all things anthropomorphic.
For 2022, our theme will be "Steampunk: On The Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse
Attention all passengers and performers:
Are you looking to swap stories, share skills, or simply meet your fellow travelers, we're eager to announce that our panel applications are now open!
If you'd like to host a panel just fill out the form below!
Panel applications close at the end of the month so be sure to send in an app sooner rather than later
More rooms at the Delta are arriving soon!
We are eager to announce that if you wish to book a room in our main hotel, we have added more king rooms. There will also be the option to request a roll-in cot, available while supplies last. These new additions will be available on the group booking site very soon!
We at CanFURence are aware that as the convention grows, and general demand for travel increases, the Delta Ottawa is running low on rooms.
We would like to remind everyone that we still have the lowest rate for rooms at the Delta, guaranteed, from anywhere. Should these new rooms be filled, there may be rooms available to book at the Delta outside of our official block, but at a higher rate.
If you need to book outside of our block, we ask you to please book with our channel by using the CanFURence Room Block link, then by selecting -> Other Hotel -> Delta, and then pay for your room.
While the room will be priced at a higher rate, and not our block rate, by booking as listed above it will allow us to possibly drop your rate to our rate by allowing the convention to claim your booking. Not only does this help to avoid financial loss, it also helps us provide information to expand our room block to ensure more rooms in the future!
For those who have already booked outside the block, we encourage you to contact us at with the subject: "Booked Outside the Block" and provide your full name and booking number so we may be able to assist you more as well.
In addition to their essential work in finding our convention space and hotels, the people at Andromeda Consultants have discount offers for car rentals and travel insurance.
You should have a look.

Attention All Passengers boarding the train to CanFURence 5!
Thank you and welcome aboard!
The ticket agent has given the go ahead and we are pleased to announce that CanFURence 5 room bookings are now available for all passengers with valid tickets.
That is correct
Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre is well equipped with sleeper cars for your enjoyment as we ride the rails for the convention. From a sleeping berth, up to the most opulent staterooms, options are available for all means or needs.
But note, you have to be registered to claim your accommodation.
While our standard attendee rooms will be available to all passengers immediately, upgraded rooms will be provided in a staggered manner commencing with Benefactors, with offerings to other classes of passengers opening every 48 hours thereafter.
Those who are already registered for the 2022 event will be given access to our standard room block immediately.
Those who are registered as Benefactors will be emailed the premium room block booking link on April 5th. For those who are registered as Patrons, the booking code will be emailed on April 7th. Then Dealers and Staff will be emailed the code on April 9th.
The premium room block code will be available to our most discerning passengers until approximately mid-June, or until they are all claimed. Anyone who registers as a Benefactor, Patron, Dealer or Staff after the code is released will be emailed the code for the premium block.
There is still time to register, or upgrade your registration, to be eligible for these potential upgrades (as well as the extra perqs that come with upgraded registrations), so get your tickets now!
Once you have registered, watch your email starting April 5, 2022 for your link to your room booking options. The booking link will also be available when you log into your account on the registration system. Just look for the friendly red button labelled "Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre" and you'll be taken to the booking site.
Be sure to book your accommodation only through the official booking links for the finest experience - accept no substitutes.
We can’t wait to go full steam ahead on our journey, and look forward to seeing you on board!
And a little hit of reality, before we go:
We also have an update regarding our COVID-19 safety procedures for CanFURence 5 this summer!
- Staff and attendees will be required to provide proof of full vaccination (second vaccination received at least 2 weeks prior) against COVID-19 before receiving badges and being permitted into event space.
- Proper masking will be required within con spaces as well. This rule will be enforced at all times, and includes those in fursuit.
- We urge everyone to follow physical distancing guidelines of maintaining a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) to other attendees at all times.
And, of course, please remember that all of these things are still subject to change depending on provincial, city, and venue rules.
We also request that everyone consider the health and well-being of yourself, those within your personal life, and your fellow furs prior to joining us, to help ensure everyone is safe and healthy.
We look forward to riding the rails with you all soon!
