Ultimate Family Event!
The Canadian Pet Expo is an absolute pet friendly family event. Whether your family member is a furry, feathery, or scaley friend, we can’t wait to meet them! We understand that not all pets are socialized in a large community setting, so please be your pets’ best advocate and make sure they are comfortable attending.
Worried about bathroom breaks and accidents?
The CPE offers two dog rest stations onsite, and same day re-entry with a stamp. We also understand that bathroom accidents happen but don’t worry, your VIP bag will have a poop bag to scoop up those accidents and we also have a specialized team on-hand to assist clean-up!
Bringing your pet to the expo?
Please download, complete, and print the pet waiver prior to the event. All pets must be on a 48” non-retractable lead and no greater. May we suggest a stroller or carrier for small pets so they can enjoy the Expo as well?
