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 2022, our theme will be "Steampunk: On The Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse

July 29-31, 2022
Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre
101 Lyon Street North,
Ottawa, Ontario
K1R 5T9

That steam-powered express that was CanFURence 5 has pulled into the station, and the passengers are disembarking.


But what will be the details for the next time Furry Fun returns to Ottawa?


CanFURence 6 will again be at Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre, 4th August 2023 through 6th August 2023.

The theme will be Fire and Ice.

Our Guests of Honour will be Ookami Kemono, Soryane, and Feli of Dark Bunny Sauces.

As we're leaving the train, the statistics on CanFURence 5 were:

  • Fursuiters - we handed out 255 tags, but there were more than that.
  • Attendees: 863
  • more than $11225 was raised for our Charity, Ottawa Paw Pantry.


Until we meet again


We look forward to seeing you all, and new faces too, in 2023!

We're on the final day of the journey that is CanFURence 5.

Please refer to the schedule for route changes - Investing 101 and CanFURence - In the Engine Room have had room changes.

We hope that you have all enjoyed your travels with us, and will join us for the next CanFURence (but you'll have to be at the closing ceremonies to find out the details).

In light of the issues with the O-Train, here's some guidance that Dronon has made available for anyfurs that may find it useful.

Thanks for this.

There has been some confusion about which attendees have breakfast included with their accomodation at the Delta.


If, and only if, you have a room on the 25th floor (a Club room on the Club floor) is breakfast included with your room.


For anyone else, you'll have to pay, or forage elsewhere.

Attention all passengers,

There has been some confusion over CanFURence’s COVID policy.

CanFURence's COVID policy has always tried to closely follow public health recommendations, which have changed as the understanding of the virus has changed.

At this time the recommendation is an isolation period of 10 days. All of this is to protect the health and safety of all attendees, but especially anyone who may be immunocompromised. You may find more information about the specifics of the public policy here:


What does this mean for CanFURence?

All of our prior regulations remain the same, and will be enforced.

In particular:

  • mandatory masking at all times within event space
  • proof of vaccination at time of admission
  • International travelers will require ArriveCan verification.



The only change is the time before the convention where an attendee tests positive for COVID-19.


Previously, if you tested positive for COVID 14 days (two weeks) prior to the convention we would have to refuse your admission.

In line with current recommendations, that period has been reduced to 10 days.

With regret, our ticketmaster will be turning away ticket holders should they test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of the con.

If you test positive on the 18th of July or later, our ticketmaster will not take your ticket.

We profusely apologize for any issues that have arisen due to this. We will do what we can to assist anyone with additional questions or concerns.

If you need to get in touch, contact us at
