Registration services provided by
All attendees of what the fur must provide valid identification prior to receiving their membership badge. Valid identification pieces can include:
- A current driver's license
- A current Provincial ID or valid Health Card (with photo)
- A current Government or Military ID
- A current Passport
We cannot accept student ID cards, Bus Passes, notes from your doctors or from your fairy godmothers.
If you have a question about your id, please contact the Registration Director. Do not leave your questions to chance and hope your id is the correct one only to be turned away at the Registration desk.
Full refunds (or credit for the next year's convention) will be given if the request is received on or before April 16. Half refunds (or half credit) will be issued on requests received on or before April 23. No refunds or credits will be issued after April 24.
If you are under the age of 18 as of the start of the convention, we require that you bring a signed and notarized Parental Consent Form with you when you come to the registration desk. If you pre-register, you can mail this form in as long as you send it before the pre-registration deadline. "Notarization" means the consent form has been signed in front of a Notary Public who merely verifies the identity of the person signing the form (your parent or guardian).
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (who is registered for the convention) at all times. All minors must present a signed, notarized, and stamped copy of our Parental Consent Form. If the minor's parent or legal guardian is present at the registration desk, a non-notarized copy of the Parental Consent Form may be used. However, the parent or legal guardian must present a valid copy of their legal identification -- passport, driver's license, government-issued photo ID (official ID issued instead of a driver's license). No exceptions will be made to this policy.
If you are turning 18 during the convention, you are still required to bring your notarized Parental Consent Form. However, on the morning of your birthdate, report to the Registration desk and receive a new label for your badge so you are no longer listed as a Minor.
If you'll be arriving late (after Registration closes) and still want to attend the evening's events, you MUST have Pre-Registered, and contact the registration director before May 1st.
When contacting the Registration Director about late arrivals, you must include your Registration ID, Full Name, and Birthdate. Please use the subject "What The Fur Late Arrival Request" in your e-mail.
Failure to properly follow these instructions may result in your request not being seen.
