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 behalf of the CanFURence convention, it is with a mix of sadness and immense gratitude that our Board of Directors announces the departure of QuyetPawz as a Board member and Head of Communications for CanFURence effective June 1st, 2019.
Since the convention's inception, QP has played a vital role in the development and success of CanFURence, both as a new organization and as a growing convention. We will miss her and her inspirational leadership. We wish her the best in all of her new and future endeavors and would like to thank her for the 4 years of dedicated service which include, but are certainly not limited to:
- Convention Co-Chair from 2015-2018\
- Board of Directors Member (and Board President) from 2015-2019
- Head of Communications from 2015-2019
The dedication, passion, enthusiasm, and motivation she has given CanFURence over the past 4 years has helped us to learn, improve, and create a fun, friendly, and welcoming convention for everyone. She will be greatly missed by all Staff, Board members, and Volunteers alike.
Thank you, QuyetPawz, for everything you have done to bring CanFURence to life, and as we continue to grow, we do so from the foundations on which you have helped to build.
If anyone has any questions regarding this transition, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at .
Conreeaght (Kenneth Renton) - CanFURence Co-Chair.
