CanFURence 2016[edit]

CanFURence 2016, the first iteration of CanFURence, took place on November 11, 2016 through November 13, 2016,[2] at the ALT Hotel Ottawa.[3]

The theme of CanFURence 2016 was "Canada as a Furred Nation",[2] looking at what the nation’s past, present, and future would be like if it were populated not by people but by furries. The Guest of Honour was Heather Bruton.[2]

321 people attended the event[4], with roughly 83 fursuits participated in the fursuit parade[5]. 49 people attended the FurScience panel. $5675.30[4] was raised for the convention charity, the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue.[1] ($4212.82 USD, as of November 15, 2016)

It was the first furry fandom specific convention in Ottawa since the conclusion of C-ACE in 2007 and the failed launch of Bytown Furry Convention in 2011.

CanFURence 2017[edit]

CanFURence 2017, the second iteration of CanFURence, will take place over November 10-12, 2017, at the ALT Hotel Ottawa.[6]

The theme of the convention will be "Furry Adventure".[6] The Guest of Honour will be furry artist Anyare.[6]
