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're a fan of cartoon animals, cinematic creatures, or mascot characters, CanFURence caters to fans of all things anthropomorphic. For 2019, our theme is "Mystery" and we have a lot of mysterious surprises in store for you aspiring gumshoes this year!

We put out a very fast announcement that Pawprints in the Pub on October 6, 2018 (hosted at Pub 101) was cancelled.

Our top priority was to swiftly notify you that the event was cancelled so everyone who was going to attend could make other plans.

We’ve ensured everyone who registered for Pawprints in the Pub for October has been refunded due to the cancellation.  Now we can address the reason why: a last-minute conflict in scheduling came up that we could not fix for October. The CanFURence Board of Directors is working to address this for the future as quickly as possible so we can all get back to our regularly scheduled Pawprints!

If you have any further questions, please e-mail us at
