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
On October 6th, 2018, we had to postpone the October Pawprints at the Pub due to a last-minute scheduling conflict with the venue which, sadly, could not be avoided.
After a discussion at that time with the new bar management and current owners of our host (Pub 101,) we came to the conclusion that this venue was not the right spot to be the home of our Pawprints events. Between changes in management, changes to our agreement with the Pub, and the feedback provided by attendees on the first Pawprints in the Pub survey which highlighted issues with the space, including accessibility for those with disabilities, it became apparent that the Pawprints in the Pub events were not going to develop into the inclusive, casual, monthly get-together we had hoped they would. As a result, all future Pawprints in the Pub are being cancelled indefinitely.
Does this mean there won’t be anymore Pawprints events?
We love hosting the Pawprints events and, in fact, are looking to gather information to see what you want from a Pawprints event.
This is where you can help. We have created a small survey to help us find out what type of events we should host, and how frequently. If you’ve been to one of our previous events, or just have your own opinions to share, please participate. This will allow us to try and locate a suitable venue that can meet the needs of most of you so that we can continue to provide fun, furry-filled events.
Help us out by filling out the survey!
