These answers are short answers to what may be complex questions.  They may not always cover all the intricacies of your situation.

We also may have inadvertently made a mistake in interpreting CanFURence policies when we create these answers, so E&OE.  If you see any answers that we've messed up please let us know, and we'll correct them.

If you have any further questions, or want to verify our answers, please refer to the CanFURence Registration Policy, the Code of Conduct, or contact us at

We’re sorry that you feel that way, but we must insist on this.  We do promise to treat your information with care.

To attend a CanFURence event or convention you must submit your information to register. The Registration staff is dedicated to your privacy.

Your real name, address, date of birth, gender and all other information gathered is kept in the strictest of confidence. This information will not be shared with any other members of the staff of CanFURence unless there is specific legal requirement to do so.

Your comfort is our key, and your privacy matters to us.

We would be more than happy to resend you your details. Please email the registration team and we can send you your details again.

So long as the name you are requesting falls within the guidelines of the Code of Conduct and complies with our strict PG13 convention rating you may choose whatever name you wish.  But there is only so much space on the badge.

Due to limitations on badge sizes, some badge names may require a shortened version of your registered name.

Yes, for online registrations we will accept other forms of payment such as Interac E-Transfer (Canadians only), cash and cheque.

If you want to pay by one of these alternative payment methods please contact us (select registration as the topic) and we will assist you.

If you are attending another event where we have a booth, you also have the option of paying by debit card, or credit card (although we can’t handle cheques or PayPal at an event).

 For 2018, you’ll see us at events including Furnal Equinox, Ottawa Geek Market, and CAPE.

The first thing you need to do is register!

Please note that there is a small delay - possibly up to 24 hours - while your registration is processed by our hard working and dedicated Registration Staff.  This is especially the case if you have paid by eTransfer.

You'll know that we have processed your registration because you will receive an email with a subject of Badge Record of Sale

Once you've received that email you will be able to log into your account on the registration site and you'll see the button that will take you to the Hotel booking site will be there.

You'll also notice on the login page for the Registration system it will list your badge number for CanFURence events.

Like any other minor, we must insist on a completed Minor Consent Form.

If your parent or guardian is not readily available to complete the form, here’s what you need to do.

If you are away from your parents and you have notified them of your intent to attend CanFURence, you can have your consent form signed by any legal Guarantor. Examples of this are Police officers, Judge, Professor, Lawyer, Notary Public or other governmental official.

A form submitted this way must be completed ahead of the convention.  Please email the Registration team a copy of your signed form. This form must also be brought with you to the convention as well.

Yes, minors (under 18 years old as of the first day of the event) can attend!

In order to process their registration, minors must present a completed Parental Consent Form that has been signed by a parent, guardian, or equivalent.  This is in addition to the requirement for all attendees that they must present legal identification in order to receive their registration.

All minors under 16 years old as of the first day of the event MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minors who are 16 years old or older as of the first day of the event may attend without a guardian present.

Please have your identification and Parental Consent Form ready as this will allow the registration process to go faster.

There is more information about minors registering and attending the convention on our website.  Have a look here

We're sorry you can't join us this year! Don't worry: our Registration Policy gives you the option of a one-time transfer of your registration either to someone else, or to next year. (Please note that in case of discrepancy, information in our official Registration Policy shall be deemed correct.)

At this time we are unable to send registration packages, swag, or other items if you are unable to attend the convention. We apologize for this.

To attend a CanFURence convention or event you must present a current and valid photo identification.

This identification must contain a current photograph, date of birth, and address. Valid forms of identification include, but are not limited to, your Passport, Drivers License, Age of Majority card, Provincial health card, Landed Immigrant Card, Tribal Band Card, or other government issued form of identification.

It is always a good idea to check with our Lost and Found – check out the FAQ on that.

If at any time your badge is lost, you may request a replacement badge from the Registration Department.

Lost badges will be subject to a replacement fee of $30 for the badge. This fee is refunded if the original badge is found and you present it along with your replacement badge to Registration Staff.

In order to issue a replacement badge, Registration Staff will be required to see your Identification.

Questions that don't relate to any specific aspect of CanFURence, but useful stuff.

CanFURence was chosen as a nod the first furry conventions in the world which was named ConFurence. We opted to make it Canadian by simply tweaking the name. ConFurence ran from 1989 to 2003. We hope to do our name justice.

Not sure if you’re a furry?

The nice thing about being a furry is if you think you are one, then you are.

There’s no membership card (although we will ask you to pay for a registration to attend CanFURence).

If someone says you’re not a furry unless you’ve got a fursuit – they’re wrong.  You don’t need a fursuit, or ears, or a tail, or handpaws.  If you want them, that’s fine too.

You don’t have to be an artist, or a writer, or a performer.  You don’t have to play games with anthropomorphic characters.  You can be or do any of those, or none of them.

The furry fandom welcomes you, however you choose to participate.

The only thing we ask of you is that you treat others with courtesy, and respect their individuality.

Furries are people who are fans of anthropomorphic animal characters. Anthropomorphic means human-like; and in the case of furries, animal mascots or animal cartoons are the kinds of characters that are being referred to (think Bugs Bunny, or Judy Hopps/Nick Wilde from the movie Zootopia). We bring them to life in any way we can, like cosplay, visual art, stories, or performance.

Many furries also have a character (sometimes characters) we create, which we identify with, and that’s who we are to the community. To us, this character is our personal mascot, only instead of rooting for a team, we’re simply rooting for the person inside.

 

CanFURence 2018 starts August 3rd and runs through August 5th, 2018.

Our theme this year is "Furry Follies", or somedays we call it "Furry Cabaret" - with either name we're asking you all to come join us in the Big Show that embodies the spirit of the fandom.

Our Guest of Honour for 2018 is AirGuiTaR.

Please attend our our closing ceremonies on the 5th where we’ll be announcing the details for CanFURence 2019.

CanFURence 2018 is being held at The Brookstreet Hotel, Resort, and Conference Centre, 525 Legget Drive, Kanata, Ontario K2K 2W2

Please attend our our closing ceremonies on August 5th where we’ll be announcing the details for CanFURence 2019.
