About Us


Welcome to the BC Anthropomorphic Events Society!

The BC Anthropomorphic Events Association, a registered not-for-profit in the province of British Columbia, is the group that oversees the operation of VancouFur, principally, as well as events surrounding it in the Greater Vancouver area. Board members are not involved directly with the operations of the convention from year to year (although Directors are welcome to volunteer as part of convention staff, remembering that they have no direct authority from their Board position); instead, they are responsible for establishing the rules, direction and financial allocation for the convention, as well as appointment of the Chair of the convention each year. Elected board members are legal representatives of the non-profit corporation legally responsible for VancouFur and other events.

The society also helps to ensure that events under the BCAEA umbrella are compliant with any relevant local regulations and legal obligations in their operation, as well as provides guidance and accountability at the top level for event runners.

The BCAEA is the parent organization for Vancoufur, Canada's first west coast furry convention, which typically runs in early March in the Greater Vancouver area, as well as the New VanHoover Pony Expo.

Meet the Board

The BCAEA is operated by a Board that meets once a month, with additional meetings as required.
