Statement issued by the Board of Directors:

29 April 2020

Since our last update, we have been continuously watching the restrictions on public gatherings, physical distancing measures, and the future of large events in Ottawa during the COVID-19 pandemic. And evaluating how it may affect this year's CanFURence scheduled for July 31st - Aug 2nd 2020.

Currently we are still full steam ahead with planning and hosting CanFURence 2020.

If a cancellation of the event does take place, we will automatically default to rolling your registration over to our 2021 year. Dealer tables will also have an automatic roll over.

You may also donate your registration to CanFURence, helping to ensure our continued ability to host our event. Like many of our fellow conventions, some expenses have already been incurred for the 2020 year. While we do have an emergency reserve for situations such as this, any donation will be greatly appreciated and helps us to make next year even better.

If you are unable to attend the following year a refund will be processed by request.

Please be sure to follow our social media accounts for further updates. If you have any questions, please reach out to us via email at


Thank you, and stay well.

CanFURence Board of Directors:
CoChairs: BT & Conre
Arc, Dia, Eilowny, Reiver & Xeno
