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 2021, we're creating a special event in November with a theme of "The Furs are Back in Town" with Guest of Honour Eevachu
For 2022, our theme will be "Steampunk on the Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse
CanFURence 2021 will welcome as our Guest of Honour:
From the depths of the 90’s comes... Eevachu (they/she)! Raised by raccoons in the wild suburban jungle
of Toronto, Ontario, Chu is an artist by day and also an artist by night (they’re bad at sleeping and having
a brain with working executive function, oops). They live in Toronto with their menagerie of pets and dragon’s hoard of enamel pins. They now work as a full-time illustrator, animator and story artist, but have experience working in the gaming, film and tv industries.
A member of the furry fandom for... a very long time, they’ve previously been Guest of Honour at Camp Feral! and Condition Furry, and are currently staff at Camp Feral!, CanFURence, and Keep Calm & Carry Con , and
have a habit of aggressively throwing art at other conventions, when they’re able to. You’ll usually see them behind their dealer’s table, or running around in one of their fursuits (Moon Moon the wolf, O’Keeffe the capuchin monkey, Alphys of Undertale fame, Eevachu the polar bear/golden lion tamarin or Bremen the DHDonkey).
Their hobbies include: being too emotionally invested in sapphic ships in cartoons and yelling on twitter about lesbian and/or ADHD things.

CanFURence 5, now expected to be in 2022, will see us welcoming two Guests of Honour!
Nicole, more well known to others as ‘Niki’ or ‘Nicnak, is an illustrator and designer, specializing in character and prop design. She is a Canadian artist, with experience working in the TV animation industry, currently living in Hamilton, Ontario with her partner and rescue cat.
Nicole has been apart of the furry fandom for nearly a decade, dedicating herself to the fandom as a fursuiter and full time freelance artist.
Nicole began creating at a very young age, having a strong interest in animals. Her work is heavily inspired by Disney and Warner Bro's animation, two companies that made her fall in love with the idea and creation of anthropomorphic characters. One thing she strives to have stand out within her work is a story. With each piece she creates, she wants the illusion of the character feeling alive, as if its about to jump right off the page due to the posing, expression and overall story within!
Nicole's fursona is a Canada lynx, that she officially created back in 2010 and has used her as a representation of herself within the fandom ever since.
Her other pastime's and hobbies include music, gaming and enjoying various types of local craft beers.
Nicole's goal is to travel across Canada and abroad in hopes of attending more conventions, meeting new friendly faces and sharing her work with others.
It's Dodge, your friendly neighbourhood swishy tail railway guy.
Dodge has been working on the rails for 8 years, and is now a locomotive engineer.
He's always happy to talk trains, and will definitely share some safety tips too. Dodge is also a music lover and energetic DJ. He'll be performing for you live during the Saturday dance!
More than a "one trick pony"!
