There is a similarly-named biannual campout/convention called Furthest North.

The Furthest North Crew (FNC) is a non-profit, Canadian-based, quarterly amateur press association (APA), published each March, June, September, and December, devoted to the subject of anthropomorphics. Although FNC is the first Canadian-based furry APA it includes members from all over the world.

Started by Growl in the spring of 1992, he transferred administerial duties after a few years due to time constraints, then full editorial power after issue 12, to a duo of members, always based in Canada. First "Sasta" (John Boulton) and currently "Jenora" (Bryan Feir) have been Production Managers, and Niall "Serval" MacConaill) has been Treasurer.

They celebrated 86 issues and 21 years of activity in September 2013, and are still going. Membership is capped at 40 people, which was attained for many years and routinely produced, in the late 90s, mailings of over 300 pages. Mailings since 2004 average between 100 and 200 pages, and since 2010 about 100 pages, depending on the participation rate of the active membership.

A number of known names from the fandom such as Genesis Whitmore, Max BlackRabbit, Jackrabbitson, and Fred Patten have been or still are members of this APA. A full list of current members is available on their web site.
