❄️Our registration system is as new as the fresh fallen snow, so you will need to make a new account when you register!❄️

We really appreciate all our loyal attendees who have come back to CanFURence year after year.

This year we have a new registration system, and from its perspective everyone is a "new user".

COVID may not be making the same headlines, but some people are still dying from it, or catching Long COVID. For your sake, and the sake of all the other attendees, we still are implementing protective measures.

Vaccination Policy

Attendees to CanFURence conventions and events must be vaccinated to the minimum recommended level per the Public Health Agency of Canada. Proof of vaccination must be presented upon request.

Vaccine boosters are not required for admittance to the conference or event, but are strongly encouraged.

Vaccine policies are subject to change with little to no notice.

Mask Policy

All staff, attendees, and guests of CanFURence must continue to wear proper masks or face coverings when inside convention or event space.

Masks and face coverings are optional while in areas accessible by the general public, but it is recommended that everyone associated with CanFURence continue to protect themselves and others against the spread of transmissible disease.

Masks will NOT be provided at CanFURence conventions and events.

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!
