For 2022, our theme will be "Steampunk: On The Rails" with Guests of Honour Nicnak and Dodge Horse

Attention All Passengers boarding the train to CanFURence 5!

Thank you and welcome aboard!

The ticket agent has given the go ahead and we are pleased to announce that CanFURence 5 room bookings are now available for all passengers with valid tickets.

That is correct 

Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre is well equipped with sleeper cars for your enjoyment as we ride the rails for the convention. From a sleeping berth, up to the most opulent staterooms, options are available for all means or needs.

While our standard attendee rooms will be available to all passengers immediately, upgraded rooms will be provided in a staggered manner commencing with Benefactors, with offerings to other classes of passengers opening every 48 hours thereafter.

Those who are already registered for the 2022 event will be given access to our standard room block immediately.

Those who are registered as Benefactors will be emailed the premium room block booking link on April 5th. For those who are registered as Patrons, the booking code will be emailed on April 7th. Then Dealers and Staff will be emailed the code on April 9th.

The premium room block code will be available to our most discerning passengers until approximately mid-June, or until they are all claimed.  Anyone who registers as a Benefactor, Patron, Dealer or Staff after the code is released will be emailed the code for the premium block.

There is still time to register, or upgrade your registration, to be eligible for these potential upgrades (as well as the extra perqs that come with upgraded registrations), so get your tickets now!

Once you have registered, watch your email starting April 5, 2022 for your link to your room booking options.  The booking link will also be available when you log into your account on the registration system.  Just look for the friendly red button labelled "Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre" and you'll be taken to the booking site.

Be sure to book your accommodation only through the official booking links for the finest experience - accept no substitutes.

We can’t wait to go full steam ahead on our journey, and look forward to seeing you on board!



And a little hit of reality, before we go:

We also have an update regarding our COVID-19 safety procedures for CanFURence 5 this summer!

  • Staff and attendees will be required to provide proof of full vaccination (second vaccination received at least 2 weeks prior) against COVID-19 before receiving badges and being permitted into event space.
  • Proper masking will be required within con spaces as well. This rule will be enforced at all times, and includes those in fursuit.
  • We urge everyone to follow physical distancing guidelines of maintaining a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) to other attendees at all times.

And, of course, please remember that all of these things are still subject to change depending on provincial, city, and venue rules.

We also request that everyone consider the health and well-being of yourself, those within your personal life, and your fellow furs prior to joining us, to help ensure everyone is safe and healthy.

We look forward to riding the rails with you all soon!

ATTENTION to our furry friends!

As we've been posting since CanFURence 2021 was first announced, due to COVID-19 we are only able to have a maximum of 500 Attendees.

We have confirmed: We have officially hit our attendance cap of 500 for this year, and we'd like to say THANK YOU!!

This means registration will not be accepting new registrations of any kind. You can still pick up your pre-reg between 1000-2100.


If you weren't able to attend CanFURence this year, we look forward to seeing you next year.
