Refund Policy

Those whose registrations were rolled over from our cancelled 2020 convention have the option to either apply it towards an equivalent 2021 registration (with the understanding that there will be slightly less deliverables than normally provided) or to have it used for our 2022 event. 2020 registrations will not be extended past our 2022 event. Should 2021 be cancelled due to pandemic-related world events or otherwise, further communication will be sent out by CanFURence on what steps will be taken.

While pre-registration is open, we will offer your choice of one of the following: a full refund of your registration; transfer your pre-registration from the current event to the next equivalent event; transfer your registration to someone else if you cannot attend. These options are not available once pre-registration closes or for on-site registration at the convention.

To make arrangements to transfer your pre-registration please contact us via (select “registration” as the topic) and we will be delighted to assist you. For more information, please take a look at our Registration Policy

Please note that while we are very hopeful that we will be able to hold CanFURence 2021, we are very much at the whim of how the virus continues to evolve and any public health measures that are imposed to help protect everyone's health.

Until this is over, for all of us, please follow the health directives of your local jurisdictions.
