We have advised the Tim Hortons next to the hotel that furry fun is once again returning to Ottawa.

They have graciously agreed to supply your Tim Hortons requirements by extending their hours!

Extended Hours during the convention:

  • Friday, Saturday, and Sunday:  05:30 to 19:00  (5:30AM to 7:00PM)

Our thanks go out to the management of Tim Hortons for making sure that your needs will not be unmet. Please be polite and understanding to their staff as they serve you!

We're not the ones filling out your Income Tax form (we have enough on our paws just doing our own!) nor can we offer any kind of tax advice, but if you're a resident of Ontario there is a program that may offer a tax credit on certain expenses related to travel in Ontario, mostly the cost of your hotel stays.

So keep your receipts from your visit to Ottawa and have a look at them when tax time rolls around again next year.

For more information on this and the eligibility for the credit check out

Do you know what tomorrow is?

Besides being Thursday, of course.

It is the last day to make a room reservation at the special CanFURence room rate!

Haven't got a room for CanFURence 5? - go here, and do it now

You will be able to book a room after tomorrow, until about a week before CanFURence (while supply lasts) through that link.  But it won't be the same special discount.

Book now, or pay more!
