CAN*CON

CAN*CON: The Conference of Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature was a convention run by The Society for Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature in Ottawa, Canada. It was founded in 1991 by James Botte and Farrell McGovern. Besides Canadian content, it's goal was to turn Canadian sf back to books.

The convention has had a fairly spotty history with two large gaps. In many years it also doesn't seem to have had Guests of Honor, though it designated up to a dozen or so people as "guests".
