Q: What is EH Con Canada?

A: EH Con Canada is short for Earper Homestead Convention Canada. It is the first Canadian convention to exclusively celebrate the award-winning Syfy/Space television show Wynonna Earp. This convention is created by fans, for fans and will be happening for its second year from August 9 to 11, 2019.

Q: Where will it be located?

A: EH Con Canada will be taking place in Toronto, Ontario. We are thrilled to be hosting it at the Westin Hotel again - address and details are on our location page!

Q: Why is the convention in Toronto?

A: Canada is a huge country, with many beautiful, dynamic cities from coast to coast. We chose Toronto because it’s central to many fans, our American friends, and many of the cast members. Toronto also has a great LGBTQIA+ community, and a bustling spring/summer festival season.

Q: How do I get from the airport to the venue (westin hotel)?

A: When arriving at the airport simply call The Westin at 416-675-9444 and ask for their shuttle driver. The driver will advise of how long they will be for pick up.  Complimentary phones are located just outside baggage claim (marked with an orange i information sign)

Terminal 3:  Pick up location on Arrivals Level, outside door “A” at post #7 or outside door “G” at post #41

When Leaving: The shuttle departs the hotel every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour.

Q: About autographs…

A: Autographs will be available for purchase prior to the convention and they will also be sold on a cash-only basis at the convention. If you have purchased an autograph, that can be used towards signing a free 8x10 photo by the guests, or an item of your choice. If you have multiple items you would like to have signed, please purchase additional autograph tickets. Autographs will be going on sale in early 2019, date TBA. Stay tuned for more info.

Q: Can i take photos during the con?

Photos can be taken during panels, but we request that flash be turned off. Photos can also be taken when one has purchased “selfies,” but outside of that, all unauthorized filming, sound recording and photography, or the unauthorized transmitting of audio or visual material, data or information, is expressly prohibited at EH Con Canada. Out of respect for our guests, photos and/or videos of cast members while they are walking throughout the convention venue/hotel are also strictly prohibited.

Q: If I require an aide during the con, will they need to purchase a ticket?

A: If your aide is planning on attending any events other than general panels, they will need to buy their own ticket. However, if they are content to remain on the side during the other events (not participate in photo ops, autos, potential meet and greet etc), they do not need a ticket for themselves.

Q: I PLAN TO COSPLAY, WHAT PROPS CAN I BRING?

A: Please keep in mind that EH Con Canada is a family-oriented convention and the rules regarding weapons are designed to keep everyone safe.

EH Con Canada is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all persons attending the convention. Any item that EH Con Canada believes may be a weapon must be immediately taken to Weapons Check for examination. Weapons that EH Con Canada determines are admissible will be marked with an identifying tag and may be brought into the convention. Any weapon that EH Con Canada considers to be inadmissible must be stored at Weapons Check or immediately removed from the convention. Any prohibited (illegal) weapon must be removed from the convention. The decision to remove any weapons is final and will be strictly enforced to ensure a safe environment for all attendees.

Q: I can’t come to the con anymore, can i get a refund?

A: Due to the nature of this convention, all ticket packages and purchases are non-refundable. However, you can transfer your tickets to someone else. We are now sold out, so the chances of finding a buyer are really high!
