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, our theme is "Steampunk on the Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse


We've been tracking down all the clues, and more than the usual suspects, and we're happy to announce that the 2019 Schedule is now available!

Right from the Opening Ceremonies, through the Closing Ceremonies and the Dead Bunny afterparty, the 2019 Schedule is all here.

As always, there may be last minute updates.
