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"

For 2022, our theme will be "Steampunk on the Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse

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!
