Canvention is the Canadian national science fiction convention, where the Prix Aurora Awards are presented. Normally it is held as part of an existing convention.


The list of past canventions may be referenced in the Programme Books of the hosting conventions[1][2]

(Note: technically, ConAdian did not host Canvention. The award presentation and business meeting were held there, hosted by SF Canada.)

Clint Budd is now the current Chair of the CSFFA (elected May 2015). Prior to that, Cliff Samuels was the most recent administrator of the Prix Aurora Awards (retired in 2015). Clint Budd was administrator from 2007-2012. Dennis Mullin was administrator for many years before that. The original award creators were John Bell and Sheldon Goldman.
